MRS. SNIDER'S COUNSELING CORNER

Wow, can you believe how fast the first quarter has gone? It's almost time for conferences. Yes, teachers are having parent conferences virtually this year. Be sure to contact them if you have not heard from them yet.
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL (On-line)!
 
The building may be closed but learning will go on. Can't wait to see all of your shining faces in our building, but until then Zoom will have to do. Here you can find resources to help with the day to day management of emotions, learning "new normals" and adjusting to different routines (such as learning to navigate that google classroom!).
Let's make sure we've got the basics covered...
 
  • Do you have a chromebook and other learning materials (for example, a math book)?
 
  • Do you have Wifi?
 
  • Were you able to log into your child's google classroom?
 
  • Do you need breakfast and lunch?
 
 
Contact me, the front office or the Resource Hot Line and we can assist you.

September PACE Character Trait is RESPECT

We are on the lookout for students who are displaying RESPECT. Respect is recognizing, considering and properly honoring the worth of one's self and others. Here are some ways to show respect:
 
  • Listen. That's why we have 2 ears and one mouth. Sometimes it's best to just use your ears and really listen to what another person is saying. Don't interrupt.
  • Serve. Doing kind deeds for others without asking for anything in return.
  • Be polite. Using your manners. Saying please and thank you. 
  • Show kindness. Be kind to anyone, anytime, anywhere. It's not always easy, especially when you have felt wronged. But kindness always wins. Remember the Golden Rule.
  • Agree to disagree. You won't always share the same opinions with others but you can respect their right to have that opinion.
