Beginning on Wednesday, October 15th Peer Mediators will be available in the cafeteria from 10:30am to 10:55am (during the lower grade lunch period) on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. When necessary, our trained fourth and fifth grade Peer Mediators will conduct mediations, at a designated-table in the cafeteria, with students in grades K-2nd who are experiencing a conflict.
On the days without the need for mediation, K-2nd grade students will be given an opportunity to get to know the Peer Mediators through small-group talks. For the small-group talks, the goal is to rotate through all of the K-2 students, offering this opportunity to 3-4 students per day. The small group talks are optional; therefore if a child does not wish to participate and take advantage of this opportunity, he/she is not required to do so.
Upper-grade students will also have an opportunity to receive Peer Mediation. Students in 3rd-5th grade will simply need to come to the cafeteria between 10:30am to 10:55am and find the designated Peer Mediators.
I am excited about the prospects of another successful year with our Peer Mediation program! Thank you in advance for your continued support of our school and Peer Mediation.
