Please, please remember to practice "I messages" with your child when dealing with any type of conflicts!

Peer Tutor Program

 
 Last year, we had over 54 fifth grade students who gave up their recess to 'tutor' a kindergarten child!! The program started in October and ran through June. Can you imagine the committment that is required from these students?  And they LOVE doing it! Relationships flourish, self-esteem grows, knowledge abounds and everyone gains!! Ask your 5th grader if he or she is planning to be a tutor this year!


New Go Zen Program Coming to Northwest!
