Kids of all ages at Laura MacArthur clapped for their peers, as they were recognized for being peacemakers.
Peacemakers are kind, and exemplify being focused, appropriate, and cooperative.
Teachers nominate students, and then the students get a certificate in front of their classmates.
Parents were invited to attend the assemblies as well.
The goal is to encourage other kids to act the same. Plus it's nice for the staff to acknowledge all of the positive energy.
