Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!
This year’s School Counseling theme is
"The best in nature and the best in us!"Mrs. Cahall, Ms. Scannell and Mrs. Karibian are very excited to work with students and their families this year.Student Services Canvas page can be found here:Listening Circles for Parents
Listening Circles are small virtual group experiences for parents who need to feel heard and understood. These 60-minute group sessions provide an opportunity to discuss and practice resiliency tools. While these sessions are not a replacement for therapy, they are led by a certified Resiliency Educator who is also a licensed mental health clinician. Listening circles can be a helpful tool in building health coping skills during difficult times.
We are introducing Reconnect for Resiliency program to support our staff, students, and families. It is a program that teaches us to recognize when we have been bumped out of our "Resilience Zone" and what strategies to use to return to it.
When we are in our Resilience Zone, we are able to communicate our needs and feelings, we can problem solve, and we use our rational, thinking brain. It is where we always want to be, even when challenges arise.
We will continue to teach students emotional regulation, using Second Step, and conflict resolution, using Kelso's Choice skills. Below are the posters we have in each classroom at school. The students begin learning from both programs in kindergarten and each subsequent year.
