Quail Valley Elementary School (QVE) hosted an Ice Cream Social prior to the end of the school year to thank its volunteers for contributing to the school’s successful mentoring program. QVE mentors committed a minimum of one hour a week to meeting with students who benefitted greatly from the added guidance, support and encouragement provided by the adult volunteers. The Ice Cream social gave mentors an opportunity to enjoy the company of their students one final time before the end of school and socialize with their peers.
Welcoming guests to the event were Lulu DeAnda, Principal; Lisa Jones, Counselor; and Renee Shanar, Counselor’s Assistant. They each thanked the mentors for their hard work and dedication to the school’s mentoring program.
“We truly appreciate all you have done to help our mentoring program stay strong these past four years,” said Renee Shanar, QVE Counselor’s Assistant and Mentor Liaison. “We have seen students grow into model students, and know it is because of all you do to support them. We cannot thank you enough.”
