Empower. Challenge. Grow.

Peer mediation is a special opportunity to learn constructive ways of dealing with the 
conflicts that students are faced with everyday. Students often have disagreements. 

Sometimes disagreements result in pushing, shoving, and fighting. Teasing and name
calling are other ways that students may express anger and frustration. Peer mediators
learn new ways to deal with conflicts so that no one gets hurt. They participate in a
special training program where they learn and practice listening skills, problem solving,
and negotiating skills. As the school year continues, peer mediators will help their
classmates solve problems peacefully, under the supervision of Mrs. Turpin-Orgetas.

Permission to join Mediation Club-  Very difficult decision to make 60 applications and only allowed to pick 25 students.

One of the goals of the Oak Grove Peer Mediation Club is to reach out to the
community and help those in need.  There is a severe shortage of blood in
our area, and that 350 pints of blood are needed everyday.  Unfortunately,
only 2% of the population donates blood. The Peer Mediation Club decided
that they would like to help alleviate the blood shortage.   Our peer
mediators made our
blood drive successful by escorting donors to the
registration booth, to the canteen for
juice and cookies, babysitting, and
greeting at the main door. 

Thank you for your support of our school and the New York Blood Center.
