TeamMate Mentors Make a Difference
October 22, 2014
Ashland-Greenwood Public Schools participated in the Saunders County TeamMates Program for many years. Recently, our regional TeamMates chapter dissolved and prompted AGPS to adopt its own program. The mission of TeamMates is to positively impact the world by inspiring youth to reach their full potential. The program matches an A-G student with an adult volunteer mentor to provide 30-60 minutes of individual mentoring one time each week throughout the school year. Mentoring sessions are held at the schools and activities during these sessions vary from helping with homework, sharing common interests, playing games or simply engaging in conversation.
AGPS is actively seeking adult volunteers who have an interest in making a difference in student’s lives. A TeamMates meeting is planned for Monday, November 3 from 6:00-8:00 PM in the elementary cafeteria. Participants will learn about the program and may opt to complete an application. A meal will be provided to adult participants. Supervision will also be available for children.
Come make a difference in the life of an A-G student!

Registration for the Lower Platte River Summit continues! The Summit will be held on Tuesday, November 6th at Camp Carol Joy Holling near Ashland, NE. The theme of this year’s Summit is “Urban Growth—Rural Resilience”. Early registration of $20 will be extended to November 1st!
Chuck Schroeder, the Executive Director of the Rural Futures Institute at the University of Nebraska will provide the keynote presentation to begin the day at 9:00 a.m. The keynote will be followed by a facilitated panel discussion that will cover a variety of topics including land use, public health, water supply, water quality, recreation, industry/economic development, and others.

Lunch will follow Plainsopoly and then we will head out on a bus tour of unique properties and communities within the Lower Platte River Corridor. Stops will include a working farm in the floodplains and bluffs of the lower Platte River in Sarpy County to and then a stop at Plattsmouth, NE to visit with representatives of their Main Street Association and Historical Society. The event will conclude by 5:30 following some time for hors d’oeurves and time for participants to visit about the day’s events.
