BHS Counselor Update

March 30 - April 3

STUDENTS

Thank you for all you have been doing at home to help keep your studies on track. We are very aware that this is NOT a perfect system. However, we have made contact with almost all of you and feel very confident that each student has access to their work in some form or fashion. I do not have a whole lot to report to you this week, but wanted to provide an avenue for you to check in with me if needed. Please remember these important things:


* Check your Google Classrooms daily.

* Use your email to contact teachers whenever necessary; we are still working.

* Make sure and keep up with the news to ensure that you are following the guidelines from your local and national government.


** Remember that the ONE thing that will be detrimental to your graduation and semester grades is refusing to do any work at all. Communicate with me if you are struggling or need help!

SENIORS

Be watching your Seniors 2020 Google Classroom for updates regarding senior events. I will be posting some Google forms next week that will need your votes to help our decision making when moving forward with planning events. Also, make sure you are connected to the Senior Remind account by texting @patrick12 to 81010

DOWN TIME

I am not sure about you, but when my kids have had too much screen time, their personalities change. They show signs of irritability, impatience, and sadness. Our bodies are built to need communication with others and outside air. During our "limited stay at home order" get creative and get outside. Many of you have seen the tailgate meetings on social media. Try to think of a spot at a friend's house and say hi to each other. Coordinate a drive by greeting to see your friend's faces. Remember to put down your phone for several hours during the day. It is good for your health and will help your family get along better while we are stuck inside. Check out these self care tips for you guys: https://www.canva.com/design/DAD3e9F617Q/STKxpgCVF6G9Hm5j90_PUA/view?utm_content=DAD3e9F617Q&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=link&utm_source=publishsharelink

SCHOLARSHIPS

The scholarship page has been updated. I will continue to update the web page as scholarships come in. I will also alert you via the Senior Remind account.

SCHEDULING

It is time to start planning your schedule for the 2020-2021 school year.

Be watching my Google Classroom for a link to register.

Zoom Room

Feeling frustrated? Mad? Alone? I am working everyday from 12-4 at the school. Please email me at jenny.patrick@bangsisd.net. I will set up a zoom meeting and we can talk for a bit to try and get your focus back on track. Just because we aren't face to face doesn't mean that I don't care. Reach Out! I promise I will have a jar full of candy when you return!
That phone conversation with your child’s teacher during this crisis!
