Counselor's Corner

August 2020

Hello Eagles!

We hope that you had a restful and enjoyable break. It is hard to believe, but another school year is well underway. We are looking forward to getting to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones. During these special circumstances, just know that we are here to support you all! Hopefully some of the things we will do as a counseling team will make your days easier and your loads lighter. We will try our best to send you a newsletter from the counseling team at the beginning of each month. These newsletters will be filled with helpful information and important dates regarding the counseling program at HBMS. Welcome!

Social Emotional Word of the Month

Courage-mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.

The word of the month for August is Courage. During this difficult time, it is important to be courageous! It takes courage to be inclusive. It takes courage to stand up to a bully. It takes courage to start a new behavior that you know makes you a better self. It takes courage to stop a gossiping conversation. It takes courage to apologize. It takes courage to show up everyday and do what you do! All of this and more–it will take courage for us to model this for one another.


AUGUST 17TH: First Day of School!

AUGUST 28TH: By this date you should have heard from one of the counselors for a quick check-in!
