PAL, Peer Assistance and Leadership, is an 8th grade leadership class of selected students. PALs mentor students twice weekly at Brinker Elementary as well as working with special needs students at Renner once a week. The class also plans Red Ribbon Week activities. Students serve as leaders at Renner and receive training in team building, effective communication, listening skills, and individual leadership skills. Students must apply to be a part of the program in the 7th grade, attend an interview with current PAL students, and complete a project about themselves. Between 18 and 22 students are selected annually.
