Friend's Core Group
The Friend’s Core Group is comprised of six 8th grade students. Students nominate themselves and are evaluated by the junior high teachers and the moderator based on grades, attendance, and leadership aptitude. Names are drawn for the positions, three boys and three girls.
The Friends Program was launched in 1993 by its moderator, Miss Young. The Friend’s Group program unites one student from each grade level into a group led by an 8th grade student. Friends Group reinforces an “all inclusive” environment and teaches leadership skills to our students. Additionally, it promotes a positive community environment for our school.
All 1st and 3rd graders are assigned either a 5th or 6th grader to read with. Students meet weekly to share books they are currently reading.
