Mentor Groups
This Friday during chapel we will be launching our Armor Mentor Group program. Students will be invited and encouraged to voluntarily sign up to participate in a mentor group. Mentor groups are made up of small groups of single grade/gender students and one adult leader. Some of the mentors are teachers and some of the mentors are adults from the greater King’s community. Mentor groups will meet two times per month during the lunch period and will spend time in fellowship, doing activities, making new friends, praying, etc. Students who sign up to be involved are expected to participate in ALL mentor meetings unless they are absent from school. Students can sign up with Mrs. Folkins right after chapel or in the office anytime through Wednesday, September 27. Please encourage your students to consider this great opportunity!

Student Led Conferences
Conferences for first term will be held on Friday, October 6, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Next week information will be sent out with instructions on how to sign up on line beginning Monday, October 2. Students lead the conferences and are required to attend with you. Conferences are encouraged, but not required. If you do not attend a conference with your student’s teachers, forms will be sent home for your student to go over with you.

Last Friday, all of our seventh graders spent the day at Warm Beach Camp along with the seventh grade teachers. Time was spent enjoying mini-golf, high ropes, swimming & canoeing. They had fun, enjoyed getting to know new friends, and were challenged by various activities and an evening message. What a great way for our students to start the year together!
