Heroes and Cool Kids
Heroes and Cool Kids is a mentoring program, where former professional athletes and accomplished individuals train high school students leaders to mentor the 5th and 1st grade students within our school district. The heroes (mentors) are selected through an extensive and competitive application process and are chosen for their academic standing, extracurricular participation and most importantly, their character. High School students are eligible to apply by the end of their freshman year. These mentors will then share their lives experiences and facilitate the programs values, geared to helping students make better, healthier choices that will lead to a successful future. The elementary school students (the cool kids) look forward to the visits with their mentors and in many cases idolize them as role models.
