Anson PALS

 


PALS (Peer Assistance and Leadership) is a mentor program that provides many benefits for Anson students. I am so excited about this group of 2017-18 PALS! We have a diverse group of students who will soon be diligently preparing to serve our schools and community. PALS will be available during 3rd period (9:38-10:23) on Monday-Friday after they complete 6 weeks of training. That is where you come in. 

The ultimate goal is for each PAL to be paired with an at-risk student in your classroom. We call them Palees. While a PAL may assist and interact with any student in your room, they need to take one child in particular under their wing. This may be a new student, a student who may be at risk, a student who has suffered the loss of a family member recently, or a child who needs an academic push. It is my hope that your PAL can work one on one most days with their palee. I realize this means your student will be taken out of the classroom often, and I know the concern this causes. However, we also know as educators that an at-risk child will perform better academically when they feel safe, loved, and have a positive role-model. A PAL can make a dramatic difference in a child’s life. It is also certainly okay for a PAL to work with a small group or whole class from time to time. The time a student spends with a PAL will not only be academic, but also time to simply talk and build a positive relationship with his or her mentor.

If you would like to host a PAL during this time and think you have a student who would benefit from interacting with a positive role model, please email me as soon as possible at mfavor@anson.esc14.net.  

If you have hosted a PAL in the past, would you please inform our new staff members about your experience? It is my goal to strengthen this program each year, so your participation and feedback is very valuable to me!
