Mentors soughtfor Pence students
Kelsie Roland, Pence Elementary School counselor, is encouraging local seniors to act as mentors to elementary students.
The extra attention helps motivate students to excel, said Roland.
Mentoring involves meeting one-on-one with students for 20 minutes or so weekly or semimonthly anytime 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Mentors talk and listen with them or play a short game together in private spaces at Pence.
