BHS Juniors and Seniors help Freshman take FLITE

Carolyne Coe and Saikrishna Kugabalasooriar unveiled the Freshman or Friends Learning Integrity through Education (FLITE) program to the school committee last night.  There is no better group to help ameliorate high school transition challenges than juniors and seniors who have recently experienced this transition.

The student mentor program was introduced by Mr. Larkin last spring.  The student leaders of this program have been hard at work all summer planning for the arrival of this year’s freshman class.  The FLITE leadership group is seeking input and can be reached at bhsmentor@yahoo.com or through Mr. Larkin’s blog at www.burlingtonhigh.blogspot.com.   

I continue to be impressed with Burlington students.  The student mentors are not only modeling for the underclassmen.  They are modeling for all of us.
