Advisor: Ashley McKee
This group will focus on building a positive school climate and taking a proactive stand against bullying.
All 7th and 8th grade students are invited to participate in this group! It will be open to 6th graders after the CREATE PEACE presentation, scheduled to occur on October 2nd, 2012.
We are looking for a diverse group of students who want to take an active part in creating and continuing to implement a culture of kindness.
Students in the group will be expected to attend monthly meetings before school and/or during their lunch period, where they will be provided food and will participate in team-building activities. They will work on how to be assertive when confronted with bullying, how to be an up-stander vs. a by-stander, and work throughout the year to build a caring school environment.
Our first meeting will be held on Friday, August 17th from 2:00pm – 3:00 p.m. in the Jones Cafeteria and we will have monthly meetings ever Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. Reminders to students will be read during morning announcements at least the day before each meeting.
All students are welcome to attend - if they miss a meeting, they are welcome to attend the next! We would like to have consistency with the group, but will accept new members throughout the year.
We look forward to helping students make a positive impact at JMS!
