Parents and Students


The Rotary District 5450 Peaceful Schools Program, sponsored and supported by Rotary Clubs, is offered in elementary school classrooms and delivered by high school students trained and supervised by Rotarians.
This model is a true win-win: The elementary students learn to engage with each other in a spirit of caring, compassion and cooperation, as they learn these positive skills and behaviors from respected and admired high school students. At the same time, the high schools students reinforce their own social-emotional skills, experience the positive impact they have on younger children, and learn valuable leadership skills was well as the rewards of community service.
