Mentor Program 2017-18
Summit team is looking for students that would be interested in mentoring 6th grade students during the 2017-18 school year. 

The Springman Mentorship Program connects 6th and 8th grade students. As part of the program, 8th grade mentors will help 6th graders acclimate to Springman Middle School. This will begin the first week of school. Each month they will meet with a 6th grade x-block and work with those groups on social/emotional learning activities. Throughout the program, these 8th grader mentors will help the 6th graders maintain positive relationships and achieve middle school centered goals. 8th grade mentors are expected to represent Springman's school-wide mission and maintain a minimum GPA of 2.5. Students cannot have more than 3 ancedoctals or discipline logs. There will be midterm and end of trimester check-ins of 8th grade mentors' grades and behavior. 
The application also requires a printout of their grades and signed recommendation from all A and B block teachers. This is a yearlong commitment. Once a student has been accepted into the mentorship program, they are expected to attend all meetings and mentorship activities throughout the school year.
