FALLBROOK — On Saturday, December 13, mentors and mentees in Fallbrook Union Elementary School District’s Mentoring to Excel and Empower Together (MEET) program enjoyed dinner together at Maie Ellis Auditorium.

Afterward, they viewed “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever,” performed by members of the Children’s Acting School & Theater (CAST), at the Mission Theater.

For most, it was the first time they had seen a play at the theater.

The week before, the mentees had an etiquette lesson where they learned a variety of useful information pertaining to dining.

January is National Mentoring Month and Fallbrook Union Elementary School District recognizes the efforts of the 18 mentors who dedicate one hour each week to students at La Paloma and Live Oak elementary schools.

La Paloma mentees Miguel Salinas, Patrick Masip, Lupita Perulero, Nanci Dominguez and Selena Flores practice mealtime etiquette.

By giving their time and showing an interest in the wellbeing of a child, these volunteers make a positive contribution to the child and the community as a whole.

The school district welcomes more mentors to join in the effort that matches fifth and sixth grade students with caring adults and mature high school students who want to be of service by being a trusted friend to a child.

Mentors lend an attentive ear and an open heart as a way to help the students be more successful at school and in life.

To offer time as a mentor, contact Leticia Maldonado-Stamos at (760) 731-4478 or e-mail [email protected]
