Brentwood Counseling Newsletter

August 2020

Welcome our new counselor, Sharon Midgett!

"I am excited to be a part of the Brentwood family and community! I've been in education for over 20 years as a cosmetology teacher and counselor. I love helping students to succeed in education and beyond to future opportunities. My personal interests include continuing to practice as a hair stylist, cooking, cycling, traveling, and of course my fur babies. Students are my main priority so please don't hesitate to contact me. I'm here for you!"

School Started August 17th

We are so excited to be starting a new school year together even if it looks a little different than it did last fall. We know that virtual learning can sometimes feel overwhelming but remember that you have so many people here to help you. Reach out to your teachers with any questions and as always your Brentwood STEAM counseling team is here to help in any way that we can.

Social Emotional Learning

As we continue to adjust to our circumstances remember to take some time for self care. Although we had some experience last school year with virtual learning, this is a new year and with that can come new frustrations. When feeling anxious, scared, or frustrated remember to take some deep breaths or take some time to do something that makes you happy. And don't be afraid to talk to someone about how you are feeling, whether it's someone at home or at school. You are never alone in this!

Virtual Calming Room
