Hello from the Director
Hello mentors, families, and friends!! I hope you all are having an excellent summer and enjoying this hot, Texas sun! I have a few announcements to share with you as we get ready to wrap up this year and begin another here at Gospel Village. Our team is getting excited as we have been planning for a great, successful upcoming school year! There are a few things I want to make you aware of as we finish up summer:
1- Gospel Village Surveys
It's that time of year to send out our yearly Gospel Village Surveys. We strive for excellence at Gospel Village and hope to tighten ship each year as we reevaluate our program. If you are involved in Gospel Village as a parent, mentor or student, would you please take a few minutes to complete our Surveys. Mentors, if you're able, next time you're with your mentee and are able, would you help us by giving your mentee this survey? This survey is in place to help us get mentor/family/student response in hopes to perfect our program and better serve you.
- Mentors: Gospel Village Mentor Survey
- Students: Gospel Village Student Survey
- Parents/Guardians: Gospel Village Parent Survey
2- Pine Cove
As you know, we are getting geared up for a week at Pine Cove Silverado. We are only a few weeks away & can't wait to share the joys of camp with your students!
