"They're really excited about this," were the words Leslie Vaccari, program chairman or the Glenelg High School PTSA, used to describe the enthusiasm of the administrators at the school.

Principal Jim McGregor is really proud of the students in the Human Relations and the Peer Mediation programs. At 7:30 p.m. on March 8, at the PTSA meeting, you'll have a chance to see these highly effective and successful programs in action.

Assistant Principal Mimi Hopkins leads the Human Relations Team. The team of students will show you what they do and how their activities affect other students' lives. The team helps students understand and respect all people.

Students, parents and 15 faculty members are working hard to make the Human Relations program at Glenelg High be the best it can be. They are creating small group activities on multi-cultural living for all students. The team will show how they do this in the classrooms.

Assistant principal Dr. Clarence Miller will introduce the Peer Mediation Team. Eleven Glenelg students are trained to help other students to resolve their conflicts. Students will display their skills through role playing, and you may ask questions about the program.

Mr. McGregor is eager to have all parents come to see these exciting programs in action. He says that Glenelg High has a fantastic program, and you just have to see it in action to see how great these students are. So mark your calendar.*
