Character Education and Peer Mediators
Students in all grade levels are provided with classroom guidance lessons and partner activities related to our character values. Grade levels work to earn Leopard Loot tickets for the title of exceptional class character.
Peer Mediators serve in two important ways at LPS. These students are 6th grade role models who are specially trained in conflict resolution and problem-solving techniques. They will use their training to help younger students play fairly and resolve conflicts peacefully. Peer mediators will also help implement LPS’s character education activities throughout the year.
