Meadow View Yearbooks

Peer Mediation involves training students to mediate conflicts and miscommunication between fellow students. Our Peer Mediators can be found helping students solve minor conflicts during K-5 recess time. Since implementing Peer Mediators we have seen an increase in student cooperation and improved school climate. In addition, our peer Mediators benefit by: Developing leadership and communication skills, problem-solving techniques, and increased self confidence.

Rites of Passage Summer Academy
The Rites of Passage Summer Academies at Lane Community College are designed to inform and inspire high school and middle school students of color in Bethel and Lane County. Students representing four racial/ethnic groups are immersed in summer programs focusing on their cultural history, literature, folklore, and traditions. These programs are designed to promote positive self-image and self-esteem. The four affinity-based programs include African American Rites of Passage, Asian Pacific American Rites of Passage, Bridge of the Gods, and Puertas Abiertas Latino/Latina Rites of Passage. These summer academies are free, but require an application. High school students are eligible for high school and/or LCC credit for participating in one of the Rites of Passage programs.
