Mount Pleasant High School students give back to E.C. Brice Elementary.
Wide-eyed elementary students gazed way up at the over six-foot tall Tiger basketball players and the MPHS National Honor Society members waiting for them in the E.C. Brice front office on Monday morning, October 2. The E.C. Brice Mentorship program officially kicked off in mid-September, and the high school students had arrived for their second meeting.
The program pairs a high school mentor with a Brice student, nominated by their classroom teacher, meeting monthly for 30 to 40 minutes. The high school students play games and do craft projects to make their students feel comfortable while talking with them and building rapport.
On Monday, they had students shooting basketballs, playing soccer, swinging, playing outdoor checkers, and enjoying board games. But all the while, the mentor students were engaging their elementary friends in conversations and modeling positive relationship skills. “Our mentor program is designed to provide a supportive environment for Brice students to learn, grow, and gain valuable life skills such as strong interpersonal skills, self-confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, and cooperation,” said E.C. Brice Counselor Jana Moore. The program will continue through April.
