Operation Preparation Returns to Leestown
Last year Leestown had an outstanding Operation Preparation. Members of the community volunteered time to sit down with our 8th graders and discuss their college and career readiness in 15 to 20 minute, one-on-one sessions. What a lift it gave our students that people would volunteer their time to come and talk to them about getting ready for college and careers, and what a great message it sent to them.
This year's Operation Preparation will be from March 10 through 14, from 9:30 to 3:30. If you are willing to volunteer, you may choose however many days and hours you would like to spend mentoring our students. We would love to have you help out! Don't worry. I will train you for your role in less than 5 minutes. I guarantee you will love this experience!
If interested, please contact Stephen Holthaus at 859-381-3181 or email@example.com.
