Peer Leader Club
To develop student leadership skills by providing training, programs, and opportunities for students to serve their fellow students, school, and community.
Description of Activities:
Peer Leaders participate in a variety of activities in our school which may include peer tutoring, serving as greeters to new students, conducting school tours, promoting school-wide events, serving as role models, serving as mentors, and assisting teachers and staff. Peer Leaders will attend the Middle School Peer Leader Conference in the fall.
Students are recommended by their 7th grade teachers at the end of the 7th grade school year. Applicants need exemplary attendance, behavior, and academic standing with a current "A" or "B" average. Recommended students receive, complete, and submit a Peer Leader Application. Peer Leaders are selected from all applicants by a committee of teachers and staff. Students will be expected to attend all meetings held once or twice a month before school at 8:15 am. Transportation to before school meetings is required.
The participation fee for peer leaders is $30.00 and covers a peer leader t-shirt, Fall Peer Leader Conference fee and general activity fees for the school year.
Parents must sign a permission form for their student to participate in Peer Leaders. An additional permission form must be signed to attend Peer Leader Conference in the fall.
