Ms. Gee's Counseling Corner
October 19- October 23
Notes from Ms. Gee
Thank you for your patience as we are working through the various pieces of this phase-in process. It has been fun to see the excitement in student's eyes as they come to school each morning and to talk to students in classrooms both virtually and in person. I continue to look positively at the future and what school will hold for the rest of the semester and continue to enjoy the seasonal transition as well, as we begin to welcome fall.
Fifth Grade Leadership Change
I will be working with small groups of students to complete announcements and help with big projects, like No Place for Hate. This week, this time will continue to be spent with your homeroom and starting next week, we will discuss with students what leadership will look like moving forward.
We want to continue to make this optional for students, but we are still working out logistics. Please be patient as we are trying to figure out the best way to navigate this. Thank you.
In order to view announcements please log in with your students account. The announcements are posted at the top of the Bryker Woods Community page under "Announcements." If you want to go back to view earlier announcements you can click on the announcements tab and you can see all earlier posts.
I am still working on the best way to put the video together, so please bare with me as it is bound to change over the course of the next few weeks.

The check-in will be completed during students asynchronous time so they will not be missing any direct teaching. I will start with our fifth grade students and will work down by grade level. I will communicate with your students teachers to conduct a sign-up to meet with every child.
I am currently working on check-ins with all of the students that are on campus right now and then will reach out to those doing remote learning in the next week or so.
Virtual Walk Against Hate
Our focus as a school, was to specifically think of ways we could stand up against bias, bigotry, and bullying. Students and families went for walks with the dog, went on bike rides, while other roller skated and skateboarded around the neighborhood. Thank you for working together to show our community that we will stand up against hate for good.
