John J. Driscoll School, PS 16

A Community of Learners Excelling Together

Students are chosen to participate as mentors to the the younger grade students by a member of our staff. Mentors assist staff members in the building in a variety of ways.  They are expected to -
  • act within a code of conduct
  • meet weekly with the Principal and facilitators
  • assist with morning, lunchtime and daily interactions with younger students or mentees
Celebration of Mentors and their Mentees
Every month, the mentors will recognize a mentee who exhibits qualities that will make them prospective mentors. A special event is planned for both mentors and mentees.
