We only have a few weeks until the first day of school for Chester County School District students! Hopefully, all of our students and families have had a restful summer and are ready for the new school year.
We know that students learn best when they have adults in their lives who mentor, inspire and care about them. As adults, we have the ability to make a difference in a child’s life in so many ways.
You may have heard that we have expanded our mentoring program for all elementary students and for Chester Middle School students.
To quote Jon Gordon, “People matter and you prove it through your actions, not just your words.” Please consider becoming a mentor for a child this year. We all benefit from an educated population, and to help a child is the ultimate way of giving back to your community!
Contact any of our elementary schools to be directed to the mentor facilitator for that school. We hope you will give a bit of your time and talents to our children! You can go to our website and look for the Resources tab, then Volunteer in Our Schools for more information about mentoring in our schools.
And for our educators, Ron Clark just tweeted, “As we start a new school year, I hope every teacher will take a moment to reimagine what education can and should be for every child. Be magical! Make possibilities a reality!” I couldn’t have said it better myself!
We are excited about a new year and look forward to welcoming our students, families, educators and community members back to school!
Make it a great year!
