Day at the Park!
Each staff member has a group of students that they do frequent check ins with, set goals, monitors grades and attendance, and is an adult that they know they can go to anytime to talk. Students bond with staff members throughout the year by having special events, having lunch, and going to the White Sox game. These types of special bonds have helped students feel more comfortable at school and has helped make Armour a place where students want to be. In addition we have seen an increased in student attendance as a result of this mentor program. This bonding experience with our students was immeasurable and positive motivation to continue the good attendance.
