Counseling Update

What's Happening

As we move into the 2nd quarter, here’s what has been going on throughout the 1st quarter through counseling guidance lessons. Here are the topics that your children have been introduced to and are continuing to practice each day. PreK- 8th grade students have been introduced and refreshed on the Role of a Counselor at our school. 1st and 2nd graders have learned about Friendship and Manners. 3rd graders have focused on Friendship and Tattling. 4th grade has had lessons on Friendship and Self-Control. 5th graders have learned about Friendship and Attitudes and Emotions. 6th- 8th graders have learned about Mindfulness, Stress Management, Teamwork, and Social Skills. These topics are all things your child should be familiar with from this quarter. As we continue through the school year, you can expect your child to learn more about how they can grow socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually through classroom guidance lessons.

Our word of the week is Obedience.
Bible verse: "Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be ready to do whatever is good." Titus 3:1.
