Who We Are: The purpose of Helping Hands is to involve non-disabled peers as peer mentors/tutors for the students in the Exceptional Learning Center. These students will be expected to assist the ELC students with morning work before school, eat lunch with the ELC students on occasion and participate in activities planned during the school year.
When We Meet: Before school, as well as specific field trips throughout the year
Where We Meet: Exceptional Learning Center (ELC) at Liberty, or the LMS Media Center
How to Become a Helping Hand: This organization is open to all LMS students (6th, 7th, and 8th graders). To become a Helping Hand, students must complete the following by August 30th, 2019: Sign and return the Helping Hands Permission Form, complete the online Required Registration Form found on our club page, and turn in $20.00 Club Fee, which includes a Helping Hands t-shirt. All checks must include a current phone number, driver's license number, and must be made out to LMS. Cash payments are welcome, but must be labeled with the student's first and last name.

An interest meeting was held on Friday, August 16th in the LMS Media Center. This meeting was not mandatory, but served to provide more information about the purpose of our organization. We are no longer accepting new members, as the deadline to register was August 30th.
Our first official meeting will be Thursday, September 19th at 7:30am in the LMS Media Center. At this meeting we will distribute schedules for Morning Duty and Lunch Buddies, and we will discuss upcoming events for our organization. See you there!
