#CounselorCorner

Parents,


Hello! Here at school, we are about to be very busy learning
about, our new word of the month, empathy- what it means, and how we can show empathy to others! Learning happens best when it is done
both at school and at home. Below are many ways that you
can help your child continue to learn about the theme of
empathy through reading about it, talking about it, and
practicing it! We are about to begin exploring this topic at
school, and I hope your family will enjoy it just as much!


Practice It!

Help your child practice considering
the needs of others. When you are
watching TV or reading books, ask
your child what he/she thinks the
characters are feeling, and what they
might need in that situation. What
could you say or do to help that
person?


Talk About It!

Here are some discussion points to help you talk about empathy with your
child:

•What does it mean to be empathetic and why is it important?
•Is it easy or difficult for you to have empathy for others?
•Tell me about a time when you were empathetic towards someone else.
•Tell me about a time when someone else was empathetic towards you.
•What would the world be like if people considered the feelings of others more often?
•How can you tell how someone else may be feeling?
•How can you tell what someone else may need?


Read About It!

Here are some books to help you learn more about empathy:
•Hey, Little Ant by Hannah and Phillip Hoose

•What’s Wrong With Timmy? by Maria Shriver
•Everyone by Christopher Silas Neal
•The Journey by Francesca Sanna


Here for you,

Mrs. Trexler

School Counselor

Breakfast and Lunch Family Information Document

Sara Long is our Child Nutrition director. She has put together the following document with links that you can access that will help answer any questions about your child's nutrition at school. Child Nutrition Info

Check out the Partnership Place Parent Center

    How Does the Partnership Place Parent Center Work?

    • A teacher will fill a “prescription” out for your child with their need addressed (literacy/math and skill area)
    • Find an activity or game you and your child would enjoy playing
    • Take it to the Library to check out the item with Mrs. Stevens!
    • You do NOT have to have a prescription to check out an item! Always feel free to take a look around, check out what you and your family would enjoy, and return for someone else to enjoy!
