WELCOME to 8th GRADE
2016/2017

Needham Mentoring Society
Needham Mentoring Society is a mentoring program, run through NHS, that matches rising Freshmen with
Junior mentors. Your mentor will help guide you around the school and to your classes, introduce you to the high
school environment and the various resources available to you as a student at NHS, answer any questions you may have,
and hopefully become a friend and role model. Our hope is that this program will ease the anxiety of rising Freshman who
are worried about their transition into NHS and help them integrate into the High School, not just as Freshman, but as peers.
We are looking for any and all rising Freshman who are interested!  This program will be as much of a commitment as you
would like, with a little guidance from us, theSeniors running the program, and your Junior mentor. We will try to pair you
with Juniors who share similar interests and passions with you inhopes of maximizing their use to you. We believe that this
program will be an excellent resource for all rising Freshman, even those with older siblings, and will be a great opportunity
to meet and befriend friendly upperclassmen.  If you have any interest in joining, you can contact Mr. Yetman, find our group
on Facebook (Mentor NHS),or contact us through email (obh181@students.needham.k12.ma.us) and we'll make sure you receive
all necessary updates! We look forward to seeing you all in the High School next year and hope you consider Mentor NHS!
I have invited you to fill out a form that is intended to confirm your interests in participating in the Mentoring Club,
and to help match you with a person you can relate to.  Click on link below:
