NEWS FROM THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR MRS. CORDIER
This year I implemented a new program called "M & M's".
M & M stands for Mentors and Mediators. A group of 25-30 5th grade students work with 1st graders at lunch and recess. These students will be trained to organize games and help mediate small problems. They will also be looking for students all alone at recess or students who need help at lunch. A group of 4th graders will be doing the same thing with the kindergarten students. THE M & Ms are doing a FABULOUS job!
