Como Park Senior High junior and senior mentors help freshmen transition to high school
Juniors and seniors at Como Park have been paired with freshmen to help new students make a smooth and successful transition into high school. Como Park’s mentoring program had its first meeting in September with 120 mentors and mentees in attendance. Participants meet every Thursday in the school cafeteria during the first part of the Empower Hour, from 1-1:30 p.m. A mentoring advisory board of 12 students meets monthly to help plan events for the large group. So far, participants have held an outside game day, gone bowling and visited the Walker Art Center.
