  • Reader One: Good morning! Tired of drama with your peers or friends? Sick of hearing all of the gossiping? And what about the name-calling, spreading rumors, and/or arguments?Are you feeling left out? Or misunderstood? Experiencing troubles working in a group in class? If you are experiencing any of these problems, coming to Peer Mediation can help! Here’s what you need to do: Fill out a Peer Mediation Request form. Forms are located in most of the team areas, hallways, the main office, or counseling office.They are bright green so you can’t miss them! Deliver the completed form to Mrs. Zalaski in Rm. 211 OR to the main office and it will be placed in her mailbox. Once the form has been turned in, you and the others involved in the issue will receive a pass to come to Peer Mediation during lunch to work things out. Two trained mediators will help you through the process in a calm fashion and guide you to an agreed upon resolution to your conflict. These mediations are completely confidential so you will feel safe. A follow-up meeting will take place about a week after the mediation to insure the agreement is working and all parties are feeling good about the outcome.
