Partners in Education Mentoring Program

Partners in Education Mentoring Program

Elkhorn Public Schools is proud to sponsor the Partners in Education Mentoring Program, a cooperative effort of educators and community volunteers designed with an academic focus to provide on-going support for student success.  Adults from the community are paired with students who are struggling academically, socially or emotionally.  Mentors meet with their mentee weekly for 30 to 60 minutes.  Meetings are academic in nature and take place on school grounds.

The program has a slightly different format at each level. At the elementary level, the program can take place before, after or during school. Adult mentors are paired with elementary students who are struggling in one or more subject areas.

The middle school program is more individualized and usually takes place during a student’s study hall.

High school students who request a mentor work with their mentors during non-instructional time, including study halls, before school, or after school. Like the middle school format, the needs of the high school mentees are addressed on an individualized basis.

Elkhorn Public School’s Partners in Education Mentoring Program is seeking adult volunteers from our community to mentor students in grades K-12. Mentors are asked to volunteer for at least 30 minutes each week for the entire school year, and may indicate preferred grade levels and times. Orientation will be provided and each building has a facilitator available to answer questions.  For more information call (402) 289-2579.

You can be the difference in a student’s life!

EPS Tech Savvy Parent Tip: January 2017

Google has made a recent change to Google Drive.  In the past, the district did not allow the option for students to create websites via Google due to privacy concerns and the fact that these websites could have been accessed by anyone on the Internet. With the recent change, we now have the ability to allow students to create websites as a part of class projects, with the assurance that these sites will only be shared within the district.  Students will now be able to create websites just like any other Google Drive resource (Docs, Sheets, Slides).  We see this change to Google Sites as a great, new educational resource for EPS students and staff.  Google Sites will be available to students after 2/1/2017.
