Donna's Ditties: January 2018

Happy New Year!

I hope your new year is off to a great start.

There are lots of sicknesses going around right now. Be sure to call ahead to the school to make sure your mentee is there. Also, don’t feel bad if you need to cancel because of illness or fear of illness. The kids will understand if you just let them know—or let us know to let them know. We need you to take care of yourself!

Once again it is time for us to ask for your mentoring hours for Fall semester. Your hours are so important to our organization, allowing us to show funders the commitment our engaged volunteers give each year. Please post your hours for last semester and this semester. You can post them at: can also email them to us or if you want to turn them in on paper, we can mail you a log sheet. We so appreciate your help with this!

Special thanks to Willow Creek Elementary and Nampa School District Nutrition Services for hosting the loving mentoring thank you event for Nampa mentors. We had a wonderful time hearing mentors tell their stories. It was great to hear some mentees tell why mentoring is important to them.

Who can you invite to become a mentor? We need mentors. Think about someone you know would be a good mentor…then ask them!

January 25th is Thank Your Mentor Day. Share with those you meet about who mentored you and how that changed your life. Then pick up the phone and call that person to thank them.

How is your mentoring going? We are here to help you. Please reach out if you need help, encouragement, ideas, or just want to share what’s going on. We love to hear from you.
