All mentors and mentis got out of second and third period to gather up in Spartan hall. We played games for example: banana and I like my neighbor.

Then we spoke with our mentis in classes we can help them and how they shouldn’t give up because that’s not a solution to life. After this was done I kept in touch with my mentis. I would go to there classes to see if they were doing good I would help them with there subjects mainly geometry and chemistry. They would tell me the problems they would have how it was affecting them and I would help them resolve there problems. Being a mentor is a blessing im not going to stop helping students in need because no one should go through high school
