Norris TeamMates

Monday, February 24, 2020

Over thirty-five Norris TeamMates mentors and board were honored at an appreciation luncheon at the Norris Middle School. Each person received a package of mentos with a note, “mento-ring means so much to us. We appreciate you.”  Each mentor also received a thank you note from their mentee. Mentors shared what mentoring means to them and activities ideas. While mentees really enjoy the opportunity to have an adult spending time with them one-to-one, a common theme is that mentors feel they get more out of mentoring than mentees. A special thanks and celebration to the eighteen new mentors were added during the last month. This will help decrease the number of Norris students waiting for a mentor. Mary Ann Franken, Teammates coordinator, along with Denise Petsche, Rhonda Burbach and Matt Rice arranged the celebration. Meeting with students does make a difference for each student. We are always looking for new mentors. If you would like more information about mentoring, contact Mary Ann Franken at the Norris Intermediate School office or go to TeamMates.org.
