Students connecting with students

Members of the Watertown-Mayer Middle School Peer Advocacy Club recently shared the important messages of kindness, acceptance and tolerance with first grade students through a reading of  Spookley the Square Pumpkin. The story features Spookley, a square pumpkin who lives in a round pumpkin patch world, and delivers the message that everyone, including those perceived as different, has something important to contribute. The peer advocacy club incorporates a students-teaching-students model to talk about character values. The club has been working PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center to implement activities.
