Helping Our Pupils Excel
Edgerton Local Schools is committed to providing a quality educational
experience for all children, and to prepare students with the academic,
college, career, and social-emotional skills necessary for success in the
twenty-first century. H.O.P.E. (Helping Our Pupils Excel) is a school
based mentoring program where community members volunteer approximately
thirty-minutes per week to mentor a student.
Mentors help students:
healthy life choices
as supportive and positive role models
Research shows that students who have a mentor are more likely to stay in
school, get better grades, and achieve a higher education. They are less
likely to become teen parents, turn to violence, and abuse alcohol and drugs.
If you are interested in becoming a HOPE Mentor, please return an
application to the elementary or high school office.
