Student Affirmations

Peaceful helpers became a group a year ago. They were 5th grade students who wanted to be peer mediators (only 8 were chosen and really needed).

Some 5th graders taped their note over and over and lasted the whole year. We've started again this year. Here's what it looks like--pretty simple but with lots of impact.
