Now that Winter is over (finally!), we can fill you in on what the Baylis Peer Mediators have been up to.  Over these past few months, Peer Mediators have continued to resolve conflicts if they arise at lunch and recess.  Our fourth and fifth grade volunteers have shown an excellent ability to interact positively with their peers and offer constructive solutions to problems. 

This Winter, we also commenced an exciting new program, Mediators as Mentors.  Each Peer Mediator was paired up with a Kindergarten or first grade student once per week to engage in mentoring during indoor recess.  Mediators quickly formed bonds with their mentees and all students involved began to look forward to their assigned meeting dates.  They used the indoor recess time to play board games or other interactive games designed to improve social skills such as turn taking, sharing, and good sportsmanship!
