Leading By Example
At Grace, teaching leadership goes beyond the walls of the classroom. Today, we spotlight our Recess Coaches… 5th graders who volunteer as mentors for kindergarten students on our Outdoor Classroom. The mentors proudly wear their colorful Recess Coach hats while assisting teachers.
The coaches are also on the lookout for students who may need a little more encouragement to get involved in the lesson. The older students are taught the best way to engage those students.
In addition to playing together, the students eat lunch together. It’s a bond we’ve seen continue to grow and develop.
The Recess Coaches are part of Grace’s Leadership Council.
