Counselor's Corner

Hello Reynolds Families,

Happy October,

October is a month of fun and spooky activities. A few highlights for October include self-management classroom lessons, Red Ribbon Week, National Bullying Prevention Month, and the Halloween parade.

Octobers classroom lessons will focus on Self-Management. Self-management is the ability to regulate our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in different situations. This helps us make good choices and work toward personal and academic goals.

This year's Red Ribbon Week will take place Oct 23rd-31st, and the theme is "Celebrate Life. Live Drug-Free." In the last week of October, we will be hosting some activities for Red Ribbon Week.

Have a great week.
