The Outdoor Space at Grace has encouraged cross-age relationships and has become a powerful mentoring medium for Lower School students. Fifth-grade students have taken on a leadership role, becoming campus recess coaches with the sole purpose of promoting play and teamwork with the school’s youngest students. Administrators and teachers have taken note of the tremendous impact these student mentoring relationships have had on the school’s vision to inspire thoughtful, compassionate students eager to engage in the world around them.
