This female elk crossed the river not far from where I was sitting having my lunch on a gravel bar. She was never aware of my presence, giving an opportunity for some very rare footage

Mentoring Program Christmas Party in Caroline School

Mentorship program youngsters are ready to enjoy their Christmas tree cake

By Helge Nome

"Youngsters, volunteers and parents attended the Caroline Family Center Christmas Party on Tuesday, December 17, at Caroline School. It was an occasion to wrap up, for the season, the in-school mentorship program that is now in its 11th year of operation in Caroline School.

The young people in the photo are all teamed up, one to one, with an adult community volunteer that comes into the school once a week and spends an hour with her/his mentee during school hours. Multi-year relationships can develop from these matches with both parties benefiting from the experience.
The program in Caroline School is hosted by Wild Rose Public Schools and supported financially by the Clearwater Regional Family and Community Services Board. The program can potentially be made available in other schools in the Wild Rose Public Schools area if local people express an interest.
