1 Student Mentor Program Goal: Middle School students will serve as role models; supporting the social and emotional growth of elementary students as well as strengthening personal leadership, decision making and problem solving skills. Objectives: WALT Keep calm during times of stress or conflict Make appropriate behavioral choices in a trigger situation Resolve conflict peacefully Communicate assertively with peers...establish a positive relationship between mentor and mentee Steps to take: 1. Students in 6th and 7th grade will receive an overview of the program. 2. Interested students will fill out an application. 3. Students will be selected based on the following: a. Completion of application. b. Handing application in on time. c. Signature from parent. d. Recommendation from staff member. e. Quality of personal statement. f. Permission from teacher (for social skills mentoring only). g. GPA and work up to date (for social skills mentoring only). 4. Student mentors will be provided with training prior to working with students. a. Session 1: Play behaviors Students will practice appropriate play behaviors such as entering play area, making a joint plan, setting up materials together, deciding who goes first, following rules of play, taking turns, sharing materials, ending a play session, cleaning up together, leaving the play area. b. Session 2: Conflict resolution Students will practice use of calming strategies, a me voice, I messages and a win win solution. c. Session 3: Noticing appropriate behaviors Students will practice use of I like that and I noticed that statements to track positive choices of younger students, thoughtful contemplation (Hmmm (state problem)... I wonder what we can do? What do you think?) to prompt appropriate choices from younger students and timeout from play to address inappropriate choices from younger students. 5. Student mentors will be paired with elementary students. Mentors and/or mentees may be doubled up.

2 6. During the first few weeks, the play session will be guided by the counselor and student mentors will practice the skills learned in training. Over time, student mentors will take over the play sessions as they develop confidence and strengthen skills. 7. At the end of each session, student mentors will evaluate their interactions with their mentee and set a goal for the next session. This can be done informally through discussion. 8. Student mentors will have the opportunity to provide service during the following time periods: a. Middle School Lunch: Mentors *will eat lunch in the counselor s office while playing with their mentee(s). Mentor(s) and mentee(s) will select a game or activity to engage in from the materials available in the counselor s office. The session will last for 25 minutes, allowing 5 minutes to walk mentee(s) back to class and engage in reflection. Lunch time mentors will work with their mentees for the full school year. b. Kindergarten/First Grade Social Skills Class: Mentors will lead a play center in one of the Social Skills classes (First grade Monday 8th period, Kindergarten Friday 8th period). This will involve setting up the center, participating in use of the center, and guiding students in cleaning up. The session will last for 30 minutes, including time for reflection. Social Skills mentors will provide support in the classroom for marking periods 1 and 2. *Mentors must get permission from their 8th period teacher to participate in the mentoring program during class time. Mentors must maintain at least a 90 average in the class and be up to date on all work assignments. Mentors are responsible for finding out what they missed in class and making up the work and handing it in during their next class period. If a mentor has a test/quiz in class they will miss the mentoring session on that day. If a mentor falls behind in class or homework assignments and/or falls below a 90 he/she will not be able to provide service until work assignments and/or GPA have been rectified. Mentors in this situation will need permission from their teacher to continue with the program. 9. Student mentors will be expected to use the skills that they learn in training during mentoring sessions as well as during their personal interactions with peers. In this way they can serve as a role model for all students in the school. Assessment: Mentors will complete a self evaluation mid year to set goals for the remainder of the year and end year to assess growth. Mentee growth will be measured using a Social Skills Rating Scale to be filled out each quarter by classroom teacher. Student Mentor Application

3 Name: Grade: I am interested in mentoring during: Lunch: K or 1st grade Social Skills Class: Both: Personal statement: Explain why you would like to become a mentor. Include the skills you have that will make you a good mentor, what you think the younger kids will get out of a mentoring relationship with you and what you think you will get out of the experience. Staff member recommendation: Ask a staff member to write a brief statement about your qualifications as a mentor. They might comment on your work habits, behavior, leadership skills, problem solving skills, personality or personal goals. *I understand that if I am selected to serve as a student mentor, I will either eat lunch during my mentoring session once a week for the remainder of the school year (if I am selected to be a lunchtime mentor), or I will miss class twice a month for MP 1 and 2 (if I am selected to be a

4 social skills mentor). If I am chosen as a mentor for social skills class, I will take the initiative to find out what I missed in class, I will make up all work and hand it in at the beginning of the next class period. I understand that in order to serve as a mentor for social skills, I will maintain at least a 90 average in the class I will miss and I will keep up to date on all class and homework assignments. I also agree to use the leadership skills that I learn in my mentoring sessions and in my personal interactions with my peers. By participating in this program, I am agreeing to become a role model and do what I can to make a positive impact on our school population and climate. Student signature: *I give permission for my student to participate in the mentoring program and engage in a working lunch once weekly for the school year and/or miss Science and/or ELA class twice monthly for marking periods 1 and 2. Parent signature: *I give permission for to miss class twice monthly to participate in the social skills mentoring program, as long as a 90 average is maintained and all work is up to date. Teacher signature: Dear Parent/Guardian,

5 Your student has been referred to our Student Mentoring Program by his/her teacher. This program is designed to provide elementary students with a positive relationship with an older student who will serve as a friend and role model. During each mentoring session your student will engage in play activities with the mentor to practice and strengthen decision making, interpersonal communication, problem solving, keeping calm and many other social skills. The sessions will be directed by me at first with the mentors following my lead. As the student mentors strengthen their skills and develop confidence, they will take over the session while I observe. The mentoring sessions take place once weekly for approximately 30 minutes. Your student will be pulled from class for his/her session. Feel assured that the referring teacher weighed the benefits of the mentoring relationship against the cost of missing class for a short period of time. Your student will not be penalized for missing work while in a mentoring session. I appreciate your permission to have your student participate. This program has been incredibly valuable over the past few years in strengthening social skills and fostering positive self esteem in the younger students as well as encouraging leadership skills in the mentors. Please send in the permission slip by Friday, September 26, Your student will be paired with a mentor and begin the mentoring sessions during the week of October 6th. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Karen LeVasseur School Counselor and Social Worker I give permission for my student to participate in a weekly mentoring session with a student mentor. Parent signature: Date:
