Our peer to peer activities take place after school. Students that interact with one another outside of school build skills that connect them with each other and to the community. One skill we continue to work on is how to initiate and exit a conversation or activity. It has been very effective to take the real life situations and practice with each other.
LUNCHES AT ANDERSON AND NORUP
We held multiple lunches at Anderson and Norup Middle Schools throughout the years. Anderson students went to Norup and Norup students came to Anderson, ate lunch and participated in team building activities.
Groups of students worked together to decorated cakes and cupcakes. One group was the winner. However, all groups enjoyed the prize of eating their creations.
CHOPPED-STYLE COOKING COMPETITION
We held a "Chopped" competition where students were given designated ingredients and they had to come up with the completed courses. With one-part friendly-rivalry, one-part guest judges, and two-parts good food, this was our signature event.
We had an opportunity to invite many students to several Tigers games and sat as a group. Some liked the gameswhile others like to socialize. We even makde it on the jumbo-tron one game.
ICE SKATING AT BERKLEY ICE ARENA
To off-set calories from our cooking programs, we have hosted multiple skating events at our neighborhood ice arena. With good friends, community support, and a little more food, a good time was had by all 50 student attendees.
We went bowling as a group and had a lot of fun. Most preferred gutter bowling and some had some pretty unique bowling moves.
CONCERTS IN THE PARK
We teamed with Huntington Woods Park and Recreation Department to have games and activities at "Concert in the Park."
PEER TO PEER ACTIVITIES
Volunteered in Everyone’s Garden to work with students in picking vegetables, weighing them and planting. They learned a lot of about gardening and working with others.
In the true spirit of inclusion, the Berkley High School Peer Mentorship Club partnered with MI Community to partner with a local, world-renowned artist, Daniel Cascardo to create a one of a kind six-panel mural that will be proudly displayed in the Berkley High School Media Center.
