Our Peer to Peer program and "The power of peers"
A large number of our 4th graders have offered to give up time from recess in order to help their peers in the special education program. These student volunteers and their peers are matched by interests then placed into groups. The student volunteers meet with the social worker to discuss how to problem solve certain behaviors or situations that may arise. Ultimately, these volunteers work with the peers they are matched with to make friendships and to form support through encouragement.
