    Lake Forest Hills Elementary

    These students are nominated and voted on by classmates at the beginning of their 5th grade year.  Bridge Builders are a very important part of daily life at our school.  In sets of two, they are scheduled to help in the counseling office each morning from 7:10 am-7:40 am with a variety of tasks because they have excellent interpersonal skills and character qualities.  Bridge Builders are well trained and confidential.  They have many leadership responsibilities, but their main focus is helping students resolve conflict. 

    They help their peers to find solutions to friendship problems or misunderstandings.  When students request help on a "Fix It Form", the Bridge Builders call a meeting between the two students.  During the meeting, they assist the students with mediating the problem.  They try to help the students think of solutions and compromises that could help fix the problem. Again, they have to exemplify good character traits and show strong communication skills with both peers and faculty in order to become a part of the Bridge Builders.

     

    Congratulations to the 2022-2023 Bridge Builders!

    (to be announced September 2022)
