Everyone who comes to Peace Club makes a promise to treat everyone else with kindness and respect, to make sure that conflicts are worked out peacefully, and that everyone is included. Some older children are asked to be Peace Club helpers. If you were to drop by Peace Club you would probably be surprised by how noisy it is. It is not "peaceful" on the surface. But there is so much going on there that is contributing to making Lafayette a more peaceful place. The children eat lunch together getting to know children in other grades and classes. After lunch they have lots of options designed to encourage cooperation and social interactions. Some children choose to make the wonderful peace posters that line the halls at Lafayette. Many children choose to join together to make fantastic structures. Some children play board games or guessing games or Twister. Peace Club is a welcoming community-within-a-community at Lafayette.
