Welcoming new families is a priority to us. We know that coming to a new school / parish can sometimes be overwhelming, especially to children. To make the experience easier we have created mentor groups – one for parents and one for students. If you are new to St. Philomena you will have mentors to help you and your child(ren) feel comfortable.
If you are a parent, you will be contacted by another parent who can fill you in on what goes on at the beginning of the school year, answers your questions, and help you navigate through the year.
New students will also have a mentor. The student mentor group is organized by our student services director, Maggie Gonzalez . The student mentors are thoughtfully chosen each year. Assigned mentors are welcoming and caring to our new students. They kick off the year with a one day gathering (prior to the start of school) where new students become familiar with the campus and their mentors by participating in a series of activities. Once school starts, the student mentor continues to assist the new student become familiar with the school day processes.
With the help of Parent and Student Mentors, new families will quickly feel a part of the St. Philomena family.
