BHS Peer Leader - Connor Noble (support for SIXTH Grade students)

Don't forget SIXTH GRADE!

I have Connor, my BHS Peer Leader here every Wednesday 10:30-11:00 to help with peer mediation, 1:1 mentoring/motivation, and some organization!

I'm in the office with him and the 6th graders each time also, so he is not doing it on his own, however, I've seen him in action, he is GREAT with our students!

Please let us know of students who could use his support.
