Activities throughout the week
Monday (Oct 9th): Peer mentors will eat lunch with the GS
Throughout this week, during seminar, students can work on what they are going to put on their forgiveness link. Seminar teachers can keep these links in their classrooms. The chain will consist of strips of construction paper stapled together in rings. Students will be encouraged to write the name of the person they’ve forgiven or an inspirational quote on the strip that has helped or helps them work through their feelings.
Monday, October 9th Peer mentors will visit your seminar to explain what your students need to do for the forgiveness chain

One of the peer mentors is going to tell their story but focus mainly on the process of healing and forgiveness, and they will begin the first link of a Forgiveness Chain. (We will stand in a circle). Students will staple their link to the first students. If they want to say something they can or they can pass the stapler on to the next person and so forth. Once we complete the chain, we will display it for all to see.
