Mrs. Lang's Counseling Capsule

6th Grade Counselor, Skyview Upper Elementary School

The Pillar of the Month for December is... CITIZENSHIP

We look forward to Skyview's Day of Service in which we show kindness, compassion, caring, and citizenship to our community on December 19th.

Citizenship Counseling Clip

Counseling Clip #5 is up on the shared drive under Skyview/Lang/Counseling Clips or here at this link:

Please show the Clip to your students. In it, I announce November's Perfect Attendance Winner and review citizenship. It is super short this time.
