Peet Echoes program builds companionship amongst students

On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after school from 3-4:30, students grades seven through nine at Peet Junior High meet in the library to participate in the Echoes program. Echoes offers alternative learning time for students after school while giving them the opportunity to meet other students. 

Although students must sign up for Echoes or attend through ALT, it provides an environment in which students can get to know others. 

Freshman Jadyn Rodgers has been attending Echoes since seventh grade and said she enjoys using it as an opportunity to meet up with her friends after school. She first attended after being invited by a friend, and would eventually take part in Echoes with a larger group of people. 

On the other hand, freshman Abby Colton first participated in the Echoes program for ALT but began attending more often because it allowed her to meet new people and spend time with them. “Echoes is for building collaboration and companionship between students, while also developing work ethic and motivation,” she said. “I like that it gives me spare free time while also not making me feel like I’m wasting my time I’d have at home.” Through games, study halls and socialization, Echoes allows the students of Peet to meet each other and form connections that last.
