Mrs. H's Corner!

Happy Spring!!

This has been a school year for the books! One thing I know for sure...we have the HARDEST working students and staff around! Our students and staff have persevered through a year of COVID, virtual learning and adjusting to the 'new norm' of school during a pandemic. This year has taught us to have grit and keep our 'promises' to be the best we can, even when the situations may not be the best.

Thank you to our families and our community for supporting our students and staff! We could not have done it without you!!

As we begin to close out the year, please remind your scholars that the school rules and expectations still apply. Students will need to be in dress code, except for Fridays and the last two days of school. We have been a little more lenient this year, however we want students to get in the habit as we will be full force in dress code next school year.

All end of the year ceremonies will be virtual this year, after district guidance. Teachers will be sending out more information to come on your child's specific ceremony.

As always, please let us know if you need anything!!

Nahtahna Hering, LCSW

Greetings from your friendly clinic therapist, Nahtanha Hering, LCSW. I wanted to take the chance to reach out to all of you now that we have gotten a few weeks of virtual learning behind us. I know from working with some of my patients that many families and students are experiencing issues or stress from doing virtual learning, such as keeping kids focused and on task during the class sessions, getting the work completed, and dealing with emotional/behavioral issues in the home. If anyone has concerns about a specific child or family feel free to refer them to me. I would be happy to reach out to the family and discuss starting services. I am able to assist students with issues such as ADHD, depression, anxiety, and anger. I can also work with parents on developing good behavioral modification strategies to use in the home. Please reach out to the clinic if you have any questions or need to contact me. Thanks.
