Treadway Elementary seeks mentors for students in grades 3-5


A new mentorship program at Treadway Elementary in Leesburg is looking for volunteers to become positive role models for students in grades 3 – 5 . It’s called P.E.A.C.E.  (Promoting Excellence through Adult and Community Engagement). Retirees, high school students, parents, community leaders, church members, business owners… P.E.A.C.E. needs you! All it takes is a 30-minute commitment once a week during school hours (8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) from October through May. All volunteers must consent to a background check. If you have a little time and a lot of heart, please contact Treadway Elementary, 352-742-2291 ext. 7925 or email Program Director Melissa Meadows at
