Friends Support Friends (FSF)

FSF is a safe space for kids to express their emotions, and talk about their feelings. Peers can support each other with conflict resolution. FSF would be part of planning school-wide events such as Respect for All Week and No One Eats Alone Day. The goal of FSF is to encourage the HPCMS students to make positive decisions and to have friends who you know will support you along your journey in middle school.
