Fifth graders trained to be peer mediators


Fifth grade students from Willow Brook Elementary participated in an all-day peer mediation training hosted by PreventEd.

Students that applied and were accepted for the program learned the process of guiding disputes, avoiding judgements and knowing the key characteristics of effective communication. They also learned and practiced meditation techniques to help resolve students in conflict.

School counselor Yue Buss will work with the students throughout the year during peer mediation.
