Orchard Springs Counselor

The purpose of this site is to provide families with access to resources outside of the school. All students at Orchard Springs Elementary receive comprehensive social/emotional instruction during school hours.

There are a number of Social-Emotional activities freely available online for children ages 5–13. Many of these are adaptable for remote learning or for families to do at home with their children.

This new podcast for families is designed to help children and grown-ups practice their social-emotional skills. Each episode tells a story that’s amazing, fantastical, and maybe a little bananas, while it tackles the big feelings that come with growing up.

Fifteen mindfulness program sessions are now available for anyone to use, no subscription necessary! Designed for educators and families to do alongside children, or for older children to do on their own, Mind Yeti provides a great way for everyone to practice mindfulness during this difficult time.
