East Broadway School Announces New Peer Mediators

October 23, 2017

East Broadway School Announces New Peer Mediators - image001Twenty East Broadway Elementary School students were officially sworn in as peer mediators on Oct. 13 after completing a total of 16 hours of training since the start of the new school year. Sponsored by the school's PTA, the students worked with the Empower, Assist and Care Network's Training/Community Outreach Coordinator Gregg Scheiner and teacher advisors Pat Nolan and Katie Winkelman.

Principal Jeanmarie Wink and Assistant Principal Jami Anspach welcomed family members to the special ceremony where they discussed the selection process and what took place during the students' training.

The program came to fruition based upon the school's shared decision making team. The goal of the team, comprised of family members, teachers and supervisors, is to improve student population in terms of growth, spirit and collaboration and decided on creating a peer mediation group. Students were selected based on their leadership qualities, their self-starter mentality and their rapport with others.

Training consisted of morning sessions before school where students worked in groups, participated in role playing activities and learned about what conflict and resolution is. They also discussed what conflict meant to them and created posters to express their ideas. With their training, the peer mediators will work with students throughout the school to help resolve conflicts that arise.

Due to East Broadway's commitment to conflict resolution, Chief Deputy County Clerk John Ferretti presented the school with a citation on behalf of Nassau County Clerk Maureen O'Connell. In addition, Town Councilman Dennis Dunne served as the guest speaker and expressed how proud he was of the students for their accomplishment. Dunne led the swearing in process where the students recited their peer mediator commitment to the school.

Each peer mediator received a certificate courtesy of the EAC Network for completing their training and were congratulated for their hard work and dedication.
