Peer Mentoring Program
Robert F. Munroe will be rolling out a Peer Mentoring Program in the 2018-2019 school year. The Peer Mentoring Program will be comprised of students from grades 6th-12th who are able to act as mentors to fellow students. To be part of the Peer Mentoring Program students will need to exemplify the Munroe Code of Conduct and be a student that will be able to be counted on to consistently set a great example in behavior and attitude. Additionally, students who wish to be part of the Peer Mentoring Program will need to display success in the classroom as a student and be an active participant in school life (clubs, sports, etc). The Peer Mentoring Program will be overseen by and sponsored by the school counselor and will meet regularly with the mentors to ensure that they are fully capable to act as efficient mentors given that the mentors will act as a primary point of contact for new students who may have questions regarding policy, grades and teacher expectations, and living in accordance with the Munroe Code of Conduct. The Peer Mentoring Program will function in accordance with the school’s mission statement of producing complete, well rounded students that are able to become fully contributing members of their community.
