Important Reminder

Reminder that students should not be playing on the playground before school starts. We have no adult supervision before school on the playground so it is not safe.

Also, only Hornung students can be on the playground during school hours up until Friendship Center dismissal at 5:30 pm.

Thank you!

Counselor Corner

Here we are in March, ready for some sunshine and warmer weather! This month, we will be visiting classrooms for some Read Alouds and social-emotional stories for Reading Month. We are also focusing on the needs of students and classrooms and providing additional support with student groups and individual support. Our goal for this month is to more directly meet the needs of our students during this stretch of the year when we all need a little more TLC.

Lets Connect: If you are noticing some behaviors that are interfering with your child’s success in the classroom, please feel free to complete my parent referral form and we can work together to determine if supports are needed here at school.

More Resources: We also have our BAS Elementary Counseling website for ideas and resources to be used at home!
