Happy Halloween! Be Safe and Have fun! Enjoy the rest of Fall
I can't believe we are already at the end of October! All of your children have been working very hard these past 8 weeks. In guidance we have focused on expressing feelings and managing your "zone" throughout the day. I am sure all the students can now tell you the 4 different zones and the behaviors/feelings that may occur in each one. We will begin work on "I" messages, tattling and friendship skills for the next few months.
Also just a reminder I will begin my first round of guidance groups next week! Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to a healthy and productive year working with all of you!
September/October School Counseling Update
Our year has kicked off to a great start. I have been in all the classrooms for first lessons with a focus on getting to know each other and the role of the school counselor! Your child participated in an activity about liking themselves and appreciating each others differences. The next few weeks our lessons will revolve around feelings and regulating emotions. Please ask your child about what they learned with Ms. Rancourt!
I have really been enjoying my time with your children, whether in the classroom, visiting at recess or lunch and of course those that participate in small groups with me! I am always happy to meet or talk with anyone that may need some extra help or support.

Happy Spring to all of our Rowe Families! We have been hard at work (even with all our snow days) in guidance the last few months! Lessons have focused on good work habits, being peaceful, and now friendships! All the students went to personal space camp (ask your child what personal space means) and practiced "driving" their spaceships safely. The remainder of the guidance curriculum will continue to support friendship skills and conflict resolution. We have lots of interesting social and emotional learning coming up!
I hope you are all enjoying our extra hour of sun light. I am looking forward to a productive and fun remainder of the year.
FYI my final round of small guidance groups will begin in April so if you are feeling your child needs some extra support in certain skills feel free to reach out.
