Hi mentors! Just a reminder that our office will be closed next week since Pasco County Schools will be closed for Spring Break but don't let that stop you from reserving your spot at the TSIC 2019 Senior Recognition Banquet. All mentors of seniors are invited to attend and you can simply reply to this email if you would like to be there to celebrate your scholar's successes and hard work. Please RSVP by 3/22 , if you haven't already, so we may plan accordingly and provide a timely headcount to our caterer. The invitation is pasted below and can also be found here with a map included.
Attention mentors of students in grades 9 - 11: Your help is needed with your scholar's mandatory, annual TSIC project and it might require a few sessions to complete it before the April 1st deadline . You will need your Mentor Toolkit for this project and use of a computer which might require having your session(s) in the media center. If you need a Mentor Toolkit, let us know and we will get a copy to you. You can also view the Toolkit online and print select pages by clicking here .

Your mentee will work with you to complete Activities 36, 38-39 plus some research on an available position of employment at a company the mentee could see him/herself working someday. To read the full details of the project requirements, click here .

Graduating seniors and students currently in middle school are exempt from the annual project.
