PALS Mentoring Program
PALS (Positive Attitude and Leadership by Students) is a school based mentoring program. There are 42 senior students, Sr. PALS, who volunteer to mentor a 5th grade student, Jr. PALS, each week. The seniors and fifth graders play board games, play sports in the gym or playground, and talk to one another. “The fifth grade students love spending time with their Sr. PAL. They tell me on a weekly basis that the time with their PAL goes way too fast! It is amazing that our very own high school students are making such a positive impact in their school community,” states Lisa Fye, the intermediate school principal. The Sr. PALS will have volunteered over 210 hours by the end of this semester.
