Peer Mediation and Peer Tutoring
1. Middle School students must go to the Main Office at Northwood and be sure that their name is on the list for transportation for the day that you would like to be tutored. Names need to be on the list by 12:00 Noon. Teachers may also refer students to tutoring. Teacher referrals also need to have the student name on the list for transportation. There is a specific tutoring form for all Middle School students; see the office or the teacher for the form.
2. High School students who want to attend tutoring and need to ride the bus after tutoring should stop in the office and put their name on the list with Mrs. Melson before noon.
3. Middle School students will board Route #2 at NWMS to transport to WNHS. Then Route #52 Activity Bus will transport them home, and it will depart between 4:30 and 4:45 PM.
4. Middle School students will report to the Library (LRC) upon arrival at North and they will be paired up with a tutor for their specific needs. Tutoring will last approximately 30 minutes beginning at about 4 PM. (30 minutes is usually long enough to get them started)
5. High School students can drop into the Library for tutoring help with classes from 3:30 to 4 PM. Students can remain in the library until the Activity Bus leaves or they can leave when they are ready.
6. Middle School students who are NOT going to ride the bus, but want to come to tutoring, need to bring a note with them from parents letting us know where they are going. Please provide a phone number on the note for us to verify.
Peer Mediation is a program that seeks to help students resolve conflicts with each other before there is a need for disciplinary consequences, or before there is stress that keeps the student from being successful at school. Students may be referred to peer mediation by either parents or school officials. Students at North have been trained in the skills needed to be an impartial mediator for conflicts that occur between students. Our goal is to teach students how to solve problems and coexist peacefully in the same space so that learning can continue.
If you have any questions about either program, please do not hesitate to call either the office at Northwood, or the office at North.
