Mentoring Program (FMP),
or a Friendly Meeting Place
Although we have not published everything that we received, we think Woodward's peer mentor outline and expectations are exemplary.
To provide every 9th grade student with a personal mentor and advocate to help him/her personalize the educational experience.
1. Assist freshmen in the adjustment to high school
* Question and answer sessions
* Getting to know you activities
* High School transition activities
2. Develop the mentor/freshman relationship so freshmen see mentors as an additional resource
3. Develop a connection to the traditions of WHS
4. Assist students in improving/maintaining grades
5. Ensure a successful high school experience for all freshmen students

Suggestions for Advisory
Mentors MUST take a leadership role/ownership of the advisory group.
Sessions should be a fun and enjoyable experience.
You may provide small treats and candy, etc.
Avoid a lecture method of presenting information.
Again thanks to Mrs. Hurst for sharing, Dec. 2013.
