In our Helping Hands program, students in the upper elementary grades are paired with students in the lower grades. Throughout the year, Helping Hands meet to work on activities, read together, eat lunch together, attend assemblies together, and more. These relationships give older students an opportunity to practice leadership and act as good role models. Our younger students develop a stronger sense of belonging as they look up to and learn from their older peers. Our students truly value these relationships that often last throughout their years at Severn.
