Counselor's Corner

Mrs. Martinez & Mrs. Garcia

THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU

February was a busy month for our Counseling Department. We celebrated Random Acts of Kindness Week and had our in person Career Day. We can't thank you, PARENTS, enough for participating in the dress-up days for RAK week. The kids looked cute and were excited to dress up!

A HUGE SHOUT OUT to our parents and community members that were able to come and present to our students for career day! The students loved the presentations and were excited to hear what their friends/classmates' parents did for a living. I heard a lot of positive feedback from our staff and students. We hope our presenters enjoyed it as much as we did.


THANK YOU....THANK YOU....THANK YOU!

and the Winners are....

The month of February teachers were selected for the Pillar of Caring. Random Acts of Kindness Daily Challenges helped our students show their kindness at school. Below is the video of our students that were selected for the pillar of Carning.


We have 2 pillars left for the year and we are going to do something different for the last two. Teachers will still get to nominate students from their class. The last week of the month we are going to have a grade level a day send their winners to morning announcements so they can come out and the school see who the winners were. We know kids will be excited to come out on TV!

Caring Pillar

March Guidance Lessons

Our guidance lessons for the month are as follows:


This month we will be helping students grow their self-confidence by loving, accepting, and sharing how they are unique. We will read the book Elmer and also use the new and amazing Encanto Movie to focus on our own gifts.


We will also be looking at the pillar of Trustworthiness by reading the book The Empty Pot. This book focuses on integrity and honesty. Students will be able to illustrate/write ways that they can show integrity at home and school.


Another topic we will discuss during guidance is Empathy by reading the book I Am Human. Students will share ways that they have shown empathy and how they can continue to respect and care for others, especially by embracing everyone's uniqueness.

Parenting Tips

This month, our parenting tip comes from the website, https://biglifejournal.com/. Peer pressure is one of the daily struggles that many students face here at school. We as counselors have talked to them about how to handle conflict by using our lovely Kelso Choices and seeking help when needed. As parents, we talk to them about ways to handle the pressure. Please visit the website listed and the flyer below to guide your conversations on building resiliency.

Free Meals for All NISD Students

Northside ISD will offer free, healthy meals this school year for all students in the District, regardless of financial status.

Typically, a student’s household must meet income eligibility requirements to qualify for free or reduced-price meals. However, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued guidance that allows schools to offer meals to all students at no cost for the 2021-2022 school year.

While no application or eligibility determination process is required for students this year, the income eligibility requirement will likely resume in the 2022-2023 school year. For more information on the free or reduced-price meal application, call 210-397-4517 or email free-reduced@nisd.net
