October Message From Our School Counselor

Attributions: 

Hello Parents!I came across this quote by author Leah DeCesare the other day and found it applicable to not only myself as a parent but also as a school counselor- "Giving kids our undivided attention, and being genuinely present, shows them they are valuable." Little things like this remind me to put down my phone, turn away from my computer and spend quality time with my kids to ensure they have a more healthy sense of self concept and self-esteem and a better rapport and relationship with me.Here is a short video clip introduced by songwriter Jeffrey Steele about Parenting.  Enjoy!http://www.values.com/inspirational-stories-tv-spots/145-my-wishWarm Regards,Ms. B- school counselor

Red Ribbon Week: Drug Free Banners

Attributions: 

Another activity for Red Ribbon Week was that each class had to make a banner that stated they would be drug free.  We then hung them up down the halls so as to remind the students to stay away from drugs and other harmful substances.  Classes were very creative and made some fantastic banners.   Here are the banners made by Mrs. Diede's, Mrs. Stokes, Mrs. Mills, Mrs. Hales and Mr. Scoubes classes.  Great job students!
