Dear Parent and Guardians,
Tatem Elementary proudly offers a Peer
Mediation program which is available
to students in second through fifth grade.
The program is intended for the students
to help resolve conflicts themselves in
a mature and responsible manner.
To participate in Peer Mediation, a student
must first fill out a Peer Mediation form
requesting a peer mediation session.
These forms are available in all second
through fifth grade classrooms and may
also be downloaded at the above link.
Parents, please do not hesitate to complete
a form if you think that your child will
benefit from a peer mediation session.
If those involved
agree to participate in this process,
a session will be scheduled within the
next week. Each peer mediation session
is lead by students that have been trained
by Mrs. Batoff and Mr. Rosenberg.
During mediation, the mediators assist
students to identify the issue(s), brainstorm
possible solutions, and reach an agreement
that will put everyone involved in a win-win
program provides an additional layer of
support for our children, so that they
have the best possible school experience
If you have
any questions, please contact me or Mrs.
