To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the risk of exposure to our staff and students, we will be limiting the visitors on campuses, once we return to in-person learning, to only parents and guardians who have completed a health screening and scheduled an appointment. COVID-19 visitor guidelines. 

We are currently investigating guidelines and protocols to implement a virtual volunteer/mentor program. Stay tuned!

Who are our HEROES?

Caring adults who have a Heart for Encouraging, Respect, Optimism, Enthusiasm and Self-confidence with our students while providing guidance and support to cultivate personal, social and academic development. These everyday people — parents, community members, business professionals —are just like you! A child is waiting for you to become their hero…

Who Is In the Program?

Students participating in the program come from different backgrounds, have a variety of interests, and a wide range of ages. They may need help with academic achievement, character development, problem-solving skills, improving self-esteem, relationships with adults and peers, and school attendance. A teacher, counselor, or parent can recommend students for the program, or a student may ask for a mentor. We must have parent permission in order for a student to participate in the program.  

How can I become a HEROES mentor?

Do you have a student who would benefit from a HEROES mentor?
