Fifteen third-grade students were selected to serve as peer mediators at Slackwood Elementary School for 2012-20113.
The students give up recess one day each week to learn peer mediation skills before applying them while conducting mediations with other students. Melanie Seaman, school counselor, heads the club at school and oversees all mediation procedures.
Students pictured above are…
