Twice a month 8th grade leadership students venture to MCES to work with 1st graders. This program began last year and is called Titan Helpers. 8th graders work with first graders on math skills or reading or any other areas of need.
They interact and present themselves as positive role models for the younger students. This program benefits the younger students by grouping them with a middle school buddy who can help them and provide some additional support. The younger students enjoy interacting with the big kids. The 8th graders benefit because they can see they are making a positive impact on the younger students.
These 8th graders are setting great examples not only to their younger buddies but also to their peers.
