On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, the new 1st grade classes celebrated their first mass of the school year with their 8th grade Peace Pals.

First grade is really excited to finally be on the main campus. They are looking forward to many things throughout this year, such as field trips and new teachers, but most of all, Peace Pals. They were paired up with the oldest kids on the campus, 8th grade. All of the 1st grade students have a Peace Pal to look up to and follow, and it’s up to 8th grade to be good examples for them.

Mrs. Wood, the 1B teacher, states why she thinks it is good for the 8th graders to be Peace Pals with the 1st graders. “It helps show leadership for them. It’s also like a full circle where they were 1st graders at the bottom and now they’re at the top.”

On the day of the mass, the 1st graders walked over to church with their 8th grade Peace Pals. To help 1st grade prepare for mass, 8th grade was asked to be reverent and show respect like they always do. Because they did this, the 1st graders followed their lead on how to act during mass. They prayed,worshipped, and participated in the mass together. The 8th graders were great role models for 1st grade. Altogther, their first school mass went smoothly and everyone enjoyed it.

After being asked why she liked going to mass with her 8th grade Peace Pal, Madison Whipple from 1A said, “I like it because I get to spend more time with them.”

Both grades can’t wait for the next school mass where they can reconnect with their Peace Pals.
