“Words Matter” Initiative Featured on Crossroads
March 21, 2017
Peer Connection, in conjunction with the Guidance Department, is running a year-long Words Matter initiative. In the “How Words Can Build You Up or Tear You Down” campaign, Peer Connectors (PCs) work with underclassmen speaking to the power and impact of words through role playing, digital media, pamphlets, and guest speakers. Since fall, black and white photos of PCs with words that have had a negative impact on them have been on display throughout the school. As the school year progresses, color photos of PC members with words that promote positive self-image will be displayed.
