Volunteers are needed to mentor students in the Aspirations advocates mentorship program. Aspirations advocates act as an adult friend to one to three students, provide a positive role model, help students set goals and more. Mentors meet with students one hour a week in the school and also meet for training once a month with the school's Aspirations coordinator. An informational meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday in the library. Call Mark Manuel, school counselor, at 283-4896 or 283-1726 for more information.
The annual sixth-grade swag fund-raiser will begin soon. The class would appreciate help from the parents. Interested parents can call the school at 283-4896 to sign up to help in November.
Donna Peterson, superintendent of the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, is planning a visit to the school Dec. 7. She will observe classroom activities and meet with staff. An hour has been set aside as a time for parents to meet informally with her from 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. in the library. Parents are encourage to attend.
Yearbooks are on sale. The cost is $30. Order forms are available at the office.
A celebration party will be held for students Nov. 10 from 12:52 to 2:27 p.m. Points will be awarded according to students' report card. Guidelines for participating are posted around the school.
