November 11-15

Last we started peer mediation groups.  We have two problem solving leaders who have been very good at helping students solve problems.  I was amazed at how well these students were able to fix problems before they escalated.  One student said, "I'm glad we talked things we're friends again!"  Our peer mediators really take their job seriously.  They will come in during lunch time if any of their peers are having problems.   It was an eye opener to me....Students can solve problems on their own!  What a great life skill they are learning!!

7 Habits Focus:  Think Win Win
Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one. Win-win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions. Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying. We both get to eat the pie, and it tastes pretty darn good!
