A message from Mrs. Zorger

A message from Mrs. Zorger

This year, RES will be implementing two mentoring programs for students in grades 3-5.  Our boys mentoring group will be meeting on Thursday mornings from 8-8:30 am, and our girls group will be meeting on Friday mornings at the same time.  We are currently seeking women volunteers to help with the girls group on Friday mornings.  Rounding up another 3-4 women volunteers would be awesome.  Our first Woman-to-Woman group will be October 11th.  If you would like to learn more about volunteering in this capacity, please call or email Mrs. Zorger ; )  Thanks so much for your consideration!
