Peer Mediators Training

Thanks to Mrs. Moyer, our school counselor, ten new Salford Hills peer mediators joined students from other SASD schools at the Boys and Girls Club. Students learned about how to spot conflicts on the playground and resolution techniques. We're thankful for the fine work of these fourth graders and how they'll make Salford Hills a better place.

We've been talking a lot about being kind at our school. About if we put kindness at the very center of all that we do and say we'll create a school we want to come to every day. It's not magic, and we're in charge...everyone is.
