New Family Mentor Program
Being at a new school is an exciting time for students and parents, but it can also be stressful -- even overwhelming -- to learn new requirements and meet so many new people. To help make our new families’ transitions smooth and enjoyable, Northland has a New Family Mentor Program. Our goal with this program is to help make our new families' transitions smooth and enjoyable. We will match new families with mentor families who will be available to answer questions and share advice throughout the school year.
Mentor families, will be matched with a family that is new to Northland for the 2015-16 school year. We will match families as closely as possible by the age, gender, and interests of the children. Mentor families will reach out to their assigned family in many ways:
- Welcome new family with a phone call or visit over the summer.
- Attend kick-off event (not required, but fun!)
- Be available to answer questions and share advice throughout the school year.
- Help new family get involved at Northland.
- Introduce family to others at Northland.
- Be a friend!
If you would like to help mentor a new family, please complete our brief online questionnaire (click here) so that we may learn more about your family. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions.
I am looking forward to an exciting year as we welcome our new families together!
