Van Buren peer mentors help younger buddies navigate school

Van Buren Elementary School fifth and sixth grade peer mentors show their STARS! Every Tuesday and Thursday at recess, these kind and caring student leaders cross campus to join their peer buddy on the primary playground. There, they assist their buddy with social interaction and play. Mentors teach and model how to play games appropriately, how to make and be a friend, how to communicate to others in order to solve problems, and how to have fun with their peers on the playground. Under the guidance of fifth grade teacher Shauna Radicelli, these young leaders demonstrate Van Buren STARS behavior expectations of Safe, There and ready to learn, Act responsibly, Respectful and Show compassion. Thank you to these wonderful school leaders for helping younger students find success and fun at school each day!
