Dear Green Step Schools,
Please take time THIS WEEK to schedule a spring meeting with your team and your mentors prior to April 30.
Mentors will want to see:
-an update on the “Learn-Do-Teach Others” aspects of the projects they are mentoring

Mentor reports are due to me May 15th.
*Note to mentors please not report “superlative nominations” until I ask for those after May 15th.
Can’t wait to read all about your progress!
