A Day in the Life - Kindergarten

posted Apr 19, 2018, 1:57 PM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated Apr 20, 2018, 9:49 AM ]


Cali, Ed White’s Therapy dog and Mrs. Miller, school counselor, teach guidance 
lessons in kindergarten every other week.  Kindergarten students learn and practice academic, personal and social skills to help them feel safe, confident and successful.  Kindergarten students practice learning and listening skills, identifying feelings, managing their own feelings to make good decisions and problem solving with others.  Students role-play, do puppet shows and sing songs to practice these skills.  The most exciting part of the class, of course, is taking turns doing tricks with Cali while she listens, focuses his attention and uses self-talk to do the right thing!

Internet Safety Presentation for 5th Graders

posted Apr 12, 2018, 11:58 AM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated Apr 12, 2018, 11:58 AM ]

As part of the Guidance curriculum, Trooper Dan Loussaert presented valuable information to 5th grade students this week.  His main message was, “If you haven’t met someone face to face, DO NOT communicate with them online.   Please talk with your child about being responsible, respectful and safe (Be a Champ) online.  If a threatening or inappropriate message is received, children should follow these steps:

     1. Do not respond

     2. Save the message:(evidence)  Do not delete

     3. Show a trusted adult

     4.  The adult can determine if parents, internet provider and police need to be contacted.
