Castlebrooke Secondary School and Walnut Grove Public School celebrate launch of joint math mentoring program
Staff and students at Castlebrooke Secondary School and Walnut Grove Public School recently celebrated the launch of a new math mentoring program. Intermediate students from Walnut Grove will work in groups with assigned mentors from Castlebrooke through the use of real-time video chat to complete weekly math problems while developing a positive relationship with a high school student. The program allows students to make connections with the math skills they are learning now and skills they will gain in high school, as well as help ease the transition from middle school to high school.
Students had the chance to participate in fun “get-to-know-you” activities at the launch party and get a tour of the school. The day was very successful and the students and teachers are excited for the weekly online mentoring sessions!
