Counselor Cabana News!

Dear WPE family,

Thank you so much for the wonderful flowers and cards in celebration of Counselor Week. You made me feel very special this week.

In appreciation of your kindness, take a minute of your day on Monday to enjoy some yummy cookies from the Counselor Cabana. The cookies will be placed at the Teacher's lounge in the morning.

Also, I will be on Rotation with Chad on the week of Feb. 15 - 19th. We will be completing our No Place for Hate activity. I will review with the kids the meaning of the "No Place for Hate" and we will complete our second activity.

Activity : #2 One school One book- We will read a book on Race and Racism "A Picture Book of Rosa Parks .. We will engage a discussion and an activity after reading the book.

Teachers, I will place an activity sheet on your mail box on Monday Feb. 15th. Please during the week take the time to complete this activity.. It should take about 10 minutes.

Thank you, So much for everything you do!!!
