The Northside Peer Leadership Club, facilitated by teacher, Ms. Ryan Shaw, has twenty members from the fourth and fifth grades who help others and make a difference in the school community. They meet once each month before school and guide and mentor another twenty students from first and second grade in the areas of literacy, citizenship and/or community service.
As role models for the younger students, these mentors develop positive relationships with the junior members of the student population. A strong appreciation for service to the community develops in all the children through this Peer Leadership Club Mentorship Program.
Pictured are Kindness Leaders selected from each classroom by their teachers.
Northside School participated in "Random Acts of Kindness Week", sponsored by the Peer Leadership Club. The event encouraged students and staff to spread kindness throughout the school community. At the end of the week, each teacher selected a "Kindness Leader" from their classroom who received a certificate for their notable acts of kindness. Through these efforts students were reminded to be kind each and every day and Peer Leadership. Club members made a positive difference at Northside School.
