Hello from Mrs. Bohr - Your New School Counselor!

Happy Friday everyone! My name is Jaden Bohr, and I wanted to introduce myself to you all as I am new to the building! A little bit about me: I grew up in Calmar, IA and attended South Winneshiek Schools until graduation in 2017. From there, I went on to pursue a Bachelor's degree from UNI in Family Services, and graduated in 2020! I immediately started my master's program in school counseling following this. When COVID shut down the country, I moved back to Calmar where I currently live with my husband and our two dogs, Emmi and Ruby. I'll graduate officially with my Master's in School Counseling in May of 2023.

Please check the Wildcat Wire throughout the year to learn about the different things we are doing in guidance classes (K-8), as well as for important information regarding college visits, career readiness, and college and career exploration.

I'm so excited to be a part of the Wildcat family! I've had a chance to meet and get to know a majority of our students, and I can confidently say we have some great kiddos here! I'm looking forward to building more relationships with students and staff, as well as the families and community members here in Riceville.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at 641-985-2288 or at my email, jaden.bohr@riceville.k12.ia.us.

I am in the building Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday each week (out of office on Wednesdays) from 7:45-3:45.

Go Wildcats!

Friday, Sept 9

September is National Suicide Prevention Month and World Wide Suicide Prevention Day is September 10. This is a time to remember those affected by suicide, to raise awareness, and to focus efforts on directing treatment to those who need it most.

This summer, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline was changed to the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline. Much like if you dial 911 in an emergency, you can now dial 988 to be connected to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Every 40 seconds, someone loses their life to suicide. It’s time to raise awareness and recognize our role to help prevent it.

ASK-LISTEN-ENCOURAGE them to seek help.

Starting next week, Sept 12th-23rd, we will be FAST Testing Screening
