Daphne East Elementary Peer Helper Program
Peer Helpers are fifth and sixth grade students who are trained to recognize when their peers may have a problem, listen to fellow students confidentially and assist them with emotional, social, or academic struggles. Some of the duties of a peer helper may include helping at car line, leading fundraisers, and assisting our students with special needs.
The Peer Helper Program at Daphne East Elementary is funded and supported by the Jennifer Claire Moore Foundation (https://jennifermoorefoundation.com/). The motto of the peer helper program is to “Be the good…show the way…lend a hand.” To read more about the purpose of using peer helpers, see the attached document.
Each year in April, rising 5th and 6th grade students will have the opportunity to apply to be a peer helper for the following school year. Teacher recommendations will be acquired by the counselor and a limited number of students will be chosen by the Peer Helper coordinator team. Applications will be available from current 4th & 5th grade teachers. Applications are due on Wednesday, May 5th. If you have any questions, please contact Kelley Morris.
