The Peer Leader and Peer Mentoring programs got off to a great start! Peer Leaders are in the process of training, which involves learning leadership skills and effective communication skills. Peer Mentors began working with 9th grade RAM Time and facilitated advisement lessons that they were previously trained in.
On August 31, Ms. Hawkins facilitated the first 9th Grade Parent Chat of the school year and experienced a great turnout! About 75 participants joined Ms. Hawkins to discuss how to foster a smooth transition to high school. 9th Grade Parent Chats are scheduled once a month for the entire school year.
