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 school-wide campaigns, 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.”
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, in the front office, or can be downloaded below. Applications are due on Friday, April 29th. If you have any questions, please contact Kelley Morris.
