2018 Quality Profile Report for Mentor Public Schools - Page 16

Educational experiences are enhanced by partnerships between the school district and community.
>> Mentor Schools teamed-up with the local VFW and American Legion posts to develop a program to honor Mentor
High School seniors who plan to join the military after high school. The annual event is named the
Koman-Spreng-Zonneville Military Commitment Ceremony to honor three local veterans instrumental in starting the
program. Ten seniors participated in the 6th annual event in 2018, committing to various branches of the military.
PTA and PTSA Organizations & Presidents
Each of the district’s schools has an extremely active PTA or PTSA.
Additionally, the presidents from each organization meet regularly
with the superintendent to learn important information that can be
shared with each school community.
Community Movie Night
For the fifth year running, the district offered events inviting the
entire community to attend a movie showing on the big screen of our
Fine Arts Center. This year, Community Movie Night events will
continue with one movie designated to raise food items as admission
to donate to local food pantries.
Mentor Police & Fire
Our administrators work closely with Mentor’s fire and police
departments to develop and update school safety plans often.
Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce (MACC)
A Mentor Schools representative serves on the MACC’s Board of
Directors as a liaison between the city’s business community and
public school district.
State of the Schools
Our superintendent delivers a State of the Schools presentation
annually to the business community through the Mentor Area
Chamber of Commerce’s January meeting.
Feed Lake County
Each school building collects food items to donate to the annual Feed
Lake County Food Drive, raising tens of thousands of pounds of food
for those in need in our community.
Business Advisory Council
The district works closely with volunteer members from the
business community to look for ways to share expertise and better
prepare our students for life after high school.
United Way of Lake County
Our administration has served on the Board for the United Way of
Lake County and all of our buildings participate each year in the
annual United Way fundraising drive.
Good Neighbors!
Our schools often take groups of students to assisted living facilities
or nursing homes to visit with residents and create special projects,
including holding a Valentine’s Day Dance and a Senior Citizens Prom.
Various Charities
All of our buildings participate in various charitable causes from
Project Hope to Jump Rope for Heart to hosting Relay for Life, among
many others.
Community Service Cord
A typical graduating class from Mentor High has completed 15,000
community service hours throughout their time in school! Students
earn a cord to wear at commencement for their volunteer efforts.
