Peer Coaches

Advisor: Mr. Brust

Meeting Day/Time: Based on PE Schedule

Grade Level: 4-5 (With Homeroom Teacher Permission)

Description:

Each year a number of our 4th and 5th grade students are recruited by our PE Teachers to assist our students with special needs in their PE classes. Volunteers that have lunch or recess in a time that overlaps these special education classes receive permission/support from their homeroom teacher to participate in the Peer Coaches program. The students "coach" our students with special learning needs with the guidance of the PE teacher. Students are able to explore their interests in community service and athletics through this opportunity.

At the end of each school year, we celebrate by bringing our Peer Coaches and the students with special needs to the local bowling center for a field trip. The pictures below show all of the students involved this year at bowling and then a fun lunch at McDonalds.
