Student Quotes

 

“Peacemakers makes a difference in my life because I get along better with people I didn’t before.  I’m not always trying to fight people.  I’m starting to want to listen to what others got to say.”  Danielle, Oak Grove

 

“I have changed because I am respectful to people.  I won’t call people fat and ugly because I know it hurts peoples’ feelings and I don’t want to be doing that any more.”  Highview Middle School 

 

“We learned about cooperating with people and including others.  I feel that this really helped me to understand that bullying is wrong.  I also think this helped me to learn how to help others that are being bullied.”  St. John the Baptist Catholic School

 

“I have seen first hand students stand up for each other.  I had many conversations with students who are concerned about friends and want to help them.  This tells me that we are making an impact.  We are letting our students know that they have a voice.  The more time and energy we as teachers put into programs like this the more productive our schools will be.”  Monticello Middle School
