The expectation of middle school an seem overwhelming to incoming 6th graders as they try to juggle many expectations and challenges it bring. Bon Lin Middle offers a Big Brother/Big Sister mentoring program to assist our 6th grade students. We pair responsible 7th and 8th grad students with 6th graders who seem to need a little care and direction at the end of the day. This not only helps the Little Brothers ad Little Sisters to feel more organized. but t also helps them feel connected to an older peer who will look out for them and listen to their concerns. Big Brother and Big Sisters have to submit an application and receive two teacher recommendations to participate in then program.
