Waiting for a mentor: Alec enjoys campfires and fishing


Right now many of our students are receiving their first academic report cards of the school year. But what would our students “support cards” look like?

Research shows that students are more motivated, self-confident, have better study habits and have an improved ability to learn and test when they feel supported by their schools, family and community.

The study goes on to say, “Students don’t care what you can teach them until they know that you care about them.”
