Every Friday afternoon at Douglas MacArthur Elementary School, selected 5th grade students use their recess time to assist in math stations in Mrs. Hope Maled’s first grade class. This is a new program, developed by Mrs. Maled and Miss Olivia Scott. Interested fifth grade students went through an application, interview, and training process. Not only does this partnership add another layer in facilitating learning for the first graders, it aides the 5th graders in developing and refining their communication and leadership skills, and in increasing their levels of responsibility.
