The Friendly Helper Program is a peer counseling/peer tutoring program for elementary students. Friendly helpers are identified at the end of fourth grade to serve during their fifth grade school year. Students are nominated by their peers and confirmed by their teachers as students who exhibit the habits of good academic skills and demonstrate the ability to be self-directed, motivated, organized and helpful.
Friendly Helpers participate in 6-8 weeks of communication training with Mrs. Conrad preparing them to perform many leadership and volunteer duties throughout the school. Each Friendly Helper works with one or more students (K-4) to promote social growth and academic performance. Friendly Helpers are respected role models for the entire school.
