At Meadow View-

Bridget and I have been busy visiting classrooms, meeting new students, and getting programs up and running.

We have started a new program to Meadow View called Kelso’s Choices– A program to help kids learn problem-solving strategies to solve small problems.  Look for Kelso’s Wheel of problem solving strategies coming home with your Kindergarten-3rd grade child.  Students at Meadow View will be using these strategies as well as Rock It Out- from Playworks to solve small problems at school.  Your child can use these strategies anywhere, which makes them good strategies to learn when they are young.

Operation School Bell, a program that offers new school clothes to students in need is done and several students from Meadow View received new school clothes!  Thanks Eugene Assistance League and Fred Meyers!

Peer Mediation training for the first trimester has taken place and our mediators will start to go out to the playground, starting on Tuesday.  This year, our peer mediation program will look a little different.  Please see below for details.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Drobac and Mrs. Foytek,

Your Meadow View Counselors

At Malabon-

Things have been very busy at Malabon in September and October.  I have been visiting classrooms, meeting new students, starting the Kelso’s Choices program, and meeting with students and parents.

Kelso’s Choices is a program to help kids learn problem-solving strategies to solve small problems.  Look for Kelso’s Wheel of problem solving strategies coming home with your Kindergarten-3rd grade child.  Students at Malabon will be using these strategies as well as Rock It Out- from Playworks to solve small problems at school.  Your child can use these strategies anywhere, which makes them good strategies to learn when they are young.

Peer Mediation at Both Schools:

Each trimester, teachers of 4th-5th grade students will select 4 students to peer mediate.  During the first trimester, those students would go out to recess and help explain the rules of our Playworks games, and play the games with the students.  When problems arise between students, the peer mediators would be there to help solve those problems.  The peer mediators are trained on how to help kids solve problems, and always have a peer mediator partner.

 

During the 2nd and 3rd trimesters, the first trimester peer mediators will not go out to the playground- they will have a different role, and still be on the team as a mediator.  Instead of the playground, they will be doing things like making posters on how to problem solve, making announcements on working together/community building, etc. during their own recesses or lunches, or in the morning, during the breakfast time, while the 2nd trimester, and then the 3rd trimester peer mediators go out to the playground.
