King 8th grade gets PEP!

King 8th grade students received a lot of good advice, words of wisdom and more from the students of Castle High School's Peer Education Program (PEP). These "upperclassmen" shared their experiences of high school in an effort to help the 8th grade students get off to a good start as the new Freshman class. They spent a class period with all the 8th grade students at King. Topics included making good choices, resisting peer pressure, keeping your focus and living Castle's 3Cs of "Character, Competence and Commitment." The PEP students stressed that the 9th grade year is crucial to their future success. Thank you to the Castle PEP students for taking the time and effort to guide our 8th grade students!
