The Hutchison PALS Program was developed to meet the individual needs of students and seeks to connect willing adults with students who would most benefit from the support. The Hutchison PALS (Purposefully Active in Loving Service) program matches adults to children at Hutchison Elementary for about 45 minutes a week. The time is spent sharing a meal, working on homework, playing games or just hanging out together.
Generally, new mentors will be assigned only one mentee in kindergarten, 1st grade or 2nd grade. For those who want to work with multiple mentees or mentees in other grades, please note those preferences in the comments section of the online form linked below.
