The C-U One to One Mentoring program is offering it's last new mentor training of the 2017-2018 school year on Monday, February 12th from 11:30-1:30 at the Mellon Building. Mentors are paired with a student 3rd grade- high school in either Champaign or Urbana schools. They meet once a week during lunch to talk, play games, do crafts, etc. It's a great way to be a positive influence in the life of a local student. Here's an article we published a few years ago that gives some great insight into the program. For more information contact Lauren Smith at [email protected] Pre-registration is not necessary, you are welcome to just show up that day.
The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
