Service Groups & Activities

Service Groups & Activities

Welcome! If you want to join a service group, please inquire with the advisor for that group. Applications are taken in 4th quarter for the next school year in most service groups. If you are new to the school, please see the advisor.

Students can participate in a service group or activity from grades 3-5. The student extra-curricular organizations offer leadership, enrichment and teamwork opportunities beyond the classroom curriculum. Once a student opts to join or is selected for participation, students are expected to remain committed to the program for the entire school year. If a student is not being a responsible learner, effective team member or study habits are faltering, continuance in a program may end. Please click on a service group or activity to find out more information.

Teachers volunteer their own time to coach and advise these groups. We are looking for parent or community volunteers to co-chair these groups in order to lighten the teacher's load and maintain these quality programs. Please inquire at the office if interested.

Peer Mediators

Conflict is a natural part of life, but how we choose to resolve conflict is learned. Peer mediators are trained 4th and 5th graders who volunteer to provide services during recesses to resolve conflicts. Disputants may choose mediation as a way to resolve any disagreements. The four-step process includes introducing the disputants, peer mediators and general ground rules; identifying the problem; finding a fair solution; wrapping up. This process is facilitated by a team of two peer mediators who help resolve problems as they occur on the playground.
