The Counselor's Corner
The only person you are destined to become, is the person you decide to be. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson~
To our 6th graders:
Welcome to sixth grade! You'll find that sixth grade is a time of transition and change. Throughout the year you will learn and grow in many ways. You will meet new people and make new friends. With help and guidance from your teachers you will explore new concepts, new ideas, and different places in the world. Your knowledge and skills will develop and grow.
Transition and change bring with them increased responsibility. You will be expected to take on challenges and begin to claim ownership over your own learning through organization, initiative, and self advocacy. It is important to start focusing on turning in homework, paying attention to due dates, deadlines and writing information in your planner. If you ever have any questions please email me.
To our 7th graders:
We are so excited to have you back this year! We hope to build on the foundation that we started in 6th grade and continue to grow. As you know we ended the year with a focus on kindness. It is our hope that we can pick it up this year. This school year let's meet new students, talk to someone you have never talked to before and make it the best year yet!
To our 8th graders:
Congratulations! Your 8th grade year has finally come! I hope you are excited! This will be a very busy year - definitely time to use those organizational skills and study habits that you have acquired over the years. Keep up the good work of being great role models for the other grade levels and remember to C.A.R.E.
Healing and Hope group will be starting soon. In December the focus will be on Holiday Grief plans. In January we will go through primary and secondary losses, anger and other underlying emotions, art therapy, coping skills, overcoming obstacles and identifying support systems. If interested please contact your grade level counselor.
