NEWS from the SCHOOL COUNSELORS
6th Grade News
Welcome to October! We are adjusting nicely to our school routine! I want to first say a huge thank you to my scholars, teachers, administrators, and school board for supporting me and getting Ollie the official school therapy dog licensed. It has been a long road of training and it all paid off. I have had the privilege of observing scholars in all classrooms, learning and doing really cool things that will benefit our community! I will soon be going into the career investigations classes to do a short lesson on Cyber Citizenship and Mental Health Awareness. If you have any questions on this or just in general feel free to reach out to me. I am proud to be your child’s sixth grade school counselor! --Mr. MG & Ollie

This school year is off to an awesome start as we move into October and near the end of the first marking period. If you have concerns about your child, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. If a google meet with teachers would be beneficial, please let me know. We want all of our scholars to be successful in the classroom. I look forward to being in the classroom next week to discuss cyber safety with my seventh graders. Please continue to monitor your child’s screen time and content. October should be an exciting month. Our school is planning on doing some activities to bring attention to breast cancer awareness. If I can be of any help, please contact me.
8th Grade News
In September we all hit the ground running! So many cool things are happening in 8th grade. Learning about literary devices in English, slopes & intercepts in Math, energy in Science and principles of government in Civics. In the world of School Counseling, I have visited all scholars in their English classes to introduce myself and help explain all things I can do to help students. Soon I will be starting some small groups on different topics that scholars often struggle with in middle school and I will continue to visit classrooms to discuss more topics such as Cyber Citizenship, Mental Health and learning about High School & Careers! If you or your scholar need anything - please reach out. 😊
