If you mentored before Fall 2015:

Select FREE new books for your child! We have a great selection of new books for you to give to your child in Prince 213K or Prince 123 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


If you are not able to continue mentoring, thank you for your service and let us know if you are able to mentor in the future. Please encourage your friends to become mentors!
