Peer Leaders at Northside School
The Peer Leadership Club at Nort hside School has twenty members from grades four and five who help bring about positive relationships between themselves and younger students. Facilitated by second grade teacher, Ms. Ryan Shaw, the group meets once a month before school and mentors another twenty students from first and second grade in the areas of literacy, citizenship, and community service.
The members guide and become role models for the younger students. They all grow as individuals as they gain appreciation for service to the school and its community.
The club brought awareness to the kind actions everyone can do for each other during "Random Acts of Kindness Week." The event spread kindness throughout Northside. It culminated with a "Kindness Leader" being selected in each classroom by their teacher. Certificates for their notable acts of kindness were presented to them by Ms. Shaw.
Kindness leaders from each classroom in every grade are pictured below with their certificates.
