Peeples, Rising Starr shares words of encouragement

Students at Peeples Elementary and Rising Starr Middle are lifting each other up.

Throughout the school year, a group of Rising Starr students from Valerie Gober’s 8th grade classes visit monthly with the Peeples 3rd grade classes of Heather Mullins and Jan Donadeo, creating lessons for the Rockets based on their class standards.

“It's a great opportunity for the 8th graders to review skills and show leadership skills, and our 3rd graders love it because it makes learning fun,” said Mullins.

During the first week of Milestone testing for the 3rd graders, the Panthers wrote an encouraging note to each student for each day of testing. In return, the 3rd graders wrote notes to the 8th graders.

“Each students' goal was to show they are thankful for their friendship and to encourage them to do their best on the test,” said Mullins.
