Counselor's Corner

As the district elementary school counselor I serve five schools. My job is to advocate for students and provide tools to help them be the best they can be! One way I do this is by visiting each classroom monthly to present a lesson.

During September our lesson was about the importance of planning ahead and choosing the harder but worth it track instead of the fast and easy track. You can ask your child to share with you what that means. This month we’ll be talking about what labels are and how negative labels can hurt your future, but positive labels can help you achieve your goals and attain better opportunities. Ultimately, the label you wear depends on you: you can change your negative labels by changing your actions and showing others your strengths and positive traits. We’ll also discuss how pressure situations are best handled by maintaining control of your emotions and selecting positive defense mechanisms (those that don’t hurt yourself or others).

Last year we learned about Mindfulness. To continue Mindfulness teachers are doing mindfulness practices with their class using videos created from those lessons. If you’d like to learn more about mindfulness check out this video, it’s a great one to watch with the whole family.

Welcome Back To School

Since this year things will look a little different and we are unable to have a back to school night we have some links to information that should help your student's first day be a little easier.
