School invites community to have lunch with students
Harriet Beecher Stowe Elementary in Brunswick, Maine, is hosting a mentorship program that brings in local community members to have lunch with second-graders twice a week, The Forecaster reports.
The program is aimed to foster conversation between the students and area adults, and staff say they are happy to have the extra adult supervision during lunch and recess.
Officials would like to find more volunteers to expand the program to the third, fourth and fifth grades in the future.
