Upper School Bridge Advisers visit 31st Street Campus

The Bridge Advisers, part of the SEL program, is a peer mentoring group made up of junior and senior SAS students, who build connections with their younger peers throughout the school year. On Wednesday, Oct. 23 they made their second visit of the year to the 31st Street Campus. 
They started in the middle school, sharing experiences and advice about navigating some of the obstacles of their middle school years with our 7th and 8th graders. The stories they told were personal, and sometimes difficult to share, but carried a message of support and solidarity for their younger counterparts, who are likely facing similar experiences. 

The Advisers then made their way to the Lower School where they met SAS’s youngest students for some playground fun! The high school students climbed on the jungle gym, played in the sand, and swung on the monkey bars with the Kindergarteners, who enjoyed their company immensely. Connections, formed immediately, only grew as the group enjoyed a pizza lunch on the deck of the Elenor Hall, as the oldest and youngest Highlanders got to know each other. Before the Bridge Advisers headed back to the Upper School, they presented each Kindergartener with a “Class of 2032” t-shirt, a memento from a day they aren’t soon to forget.
