One2One Standout Student

At North View Middle School we believe that the school environment should be invitingsafeinclusive, and supportive of all and every student’s academic and personal development should be guided by an adult advocate. While much of this support is provided by staff at the building level, we also partner with community members to ensure that every student has a champion.

One example of this is our partnership with the One2One mentoring program. The One2One mentorship program partnership began in November of 2011 with the goal of developing a mentoring program that would provide support to students struggling within the school environment. It has since evolved into a multi-school partnership supporting over a hundred middle and elementary school students. One student that has been supported by this program is one of our current 8th graders, Shaliesch.

Shaliesch was asked to speak at the most recent One2One Mentor fundraising luncheon. She spoke in front of 200 people about her experience as a student, her time in the One2One program and her hopes for the future. After her speech Shaliesch end up being the most famous people in the room. If you would like to more about this program, please click here.
