JAMM's Youngest Teaching Assistants Give New Students a Boost

 JAMM's youngest teaching assistants help new students learn how to play the violin during the first month of school.
Over 150 students have signed up for JAMM's after-school club at Glacier Valley! Twenty-five of those students are new to Glacier Valley or the JAMM program. These photos document a peer-mentoring program that acted as an intensive Beginning Violin class to give new students a boost, while making friends in their new school. What made it such a success? JAMM students in Grades 3 and 4 signed-up to be "Teaching Assistants" for these beginning students. I hope the pictures below capture the pride, community, and relationship-building that occurred during those lessons.
