    Welch Elementary's staff is proud of our Peer Mediators! Our Peer Mediators believe: violence is everyone's problem, violence should not be accepted or tolerated, adults should help young people; differences should be accepted, people who are nonviolent are cool and that each of us can be a powerful force in reducing violence.
