NCE we are thankful for you!!

As we enter the month of November, we are so thankful for all of the support from our community as we have transitioned to back in the building learning for Pre-k - 2nd grade! We have always known our community was special, but your support means the world to us as we continue to defy the odds each day!

So What's New?

Counselor Lessons:

Beginning in September/October, I typically rotate going into each classroom at North Chatham delivering classroom lessons to help students social and emotional competence and growth. During Virtual Learning, I have created weekly newsletters that focus on some SEL topic in hopes that you may be able to use the resources for at home learning! Teachers have also included pre-recorded lessons from me over the past few weeks for students to do at home if they are able!


I always start the year off explaining and sharing what a School Counselor is and how they help students. Feel free to look at the information below to get a better understanding if you too are wondering!

How do School Counselors Help?

Elementary school counselors are educators uniquely trained in child development, learning strategies, self management and social skills, who understand and promote success for today’s diverse students.


By providing education, prevention, early identification and intervention, elementary school counselors help their students achieve academic success, develop an understanding of career opportunities and develop social/ emotional skills in response to issues they face.

Reminder: How to contact your School Counselor!

If at any time during the weeks we are out you feel that your child could benefit from chatting with someone from our Student Services team - Mrs. Morrison - School Counselor & Mr. Scholle - School Social Worker - please let us know! We are happy to chat with students as a check in on any anxieties they may be feeling or other issues that are affecting them socially or emotionally. You can email me directly at kloftus@chatham.k12.nc.us or Mr. Scholle at pscholle@chatham.k12.nc.us
