Welcome to the 20-21 School Year!

Hello and welcome to the new school year! My name is Mrs. Jacobs, and I am excited to start my first year here at Jenkins Elementary as your School Counselor! This time of year always brings with it excitement, as well as anxiety for what is to come, but this year especially brings with it it's own array of emotions. Excitement to get back to something "normal", relief in seeing some familiar faces again (even if it is over a computer screen to start), anxiety over what the year will hold, fear of potential health concerns; the list of feelings goes on and on and the reasons for the emotions can vary from kid-to-kid and parent-to-parent. Therefore it is so important to be patient, gentle, and kind with one another, and with yourself!

I am here to be a listening ear and resource for the students, faculty, and families of Jenkins Elementary. I am excited to start my first year and look forward to meeting all of you, online and eventually in person! On this page you'll find any relevant updates from the Counseling Office pertaining to the school, mental health information, and community resources. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns!
