Peer Advisors Leading Students
A Mentoring Program for 4th grade at Lafayette in conjunction with Chatham High School
We are excited to bring back Chatham P.A.L.S. (Peer Advisors Leading Students), a school-based, cross-age mentoring program with Chatham High School. Mentoring programs have proven in the past to increase a child’s self-esteem and social connectedness in both the mentor and the mentee. Cross-age mentoring can also increase students’ academic achievement, improve behavior and foster effective communication skills.
Our program is designed to connect a Chatham High School student with your son/daughter. They will play games, work on HW, or socialize with other 4th graders and high school students in a supervised setting. We have seen a change in elementary school aged children as well as their mentors during the course of the session.
Below you will find a list of the dates and time of each session. We meet during Period 9, Applied Music on D days. To register for this program, please click on the link below. There is a limited amount of spaces, so we will be taking names on a first come first serve basis. The deadline to register for this program is Wednesday January 13, 2016.
Any questions, please contact Cindy Weiner, Lafayette School Counselor
