Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am very excited to announce that I have started working with your students in their classrooms. I will be starting my monthly classroom guidance lessons this week. This month the topic is Meet the Counselor. This lesson entails an introduction of who I am, what a school counselor does, how a school counselor helps students, and what to do if a student needs to talk to me.
Meet the Counselor (K-8): September lesson
This year I am starting a monthly reward for our falcons in grades kindergarten through fourth! Once a month I will be hosting Cookies With the Counselor in my office. Each classroom teacher will choose one student from their class that has been caught doing the right thing. They will be allowed to bring a friend. The students will bring their lunches with them whether they are packing or buying that day. I will provide the cookies.

This month I will be collaborating with our staff for a school-wide program, Start With Hello week! This program enables students to make a difference with their peers in a simple, fun, and impactful way by encouraging them to take small but powerful actions to promote connectedness and inclusion, and to identify and help others who are showing signs of social isolation.
