Ms. Gee's Counseling Corner
I'd like to say what a week, but really, I have to say what a month! In light of our winter storm, there has been additional trauma that I know many of you endured this past week, and may still be experiencing. We want to address the needs of our students, families and community. Below is the February newsletter, with additional resources and information about upcoming events.
Please reach out via email if you have additional questions or concerns.

3rd grade Book Study Opportunities
The second book study will start just after spring break and we will be using the book Speak Up and Get Along. This book is geared towards all kids and gives practical tools and strategies to communicate clearly and engage in positive social interactions.
If you are still interested in your 3rd grade student to join the spring book study, please fill out the following google form. I look forward to meeting with your kids.
*Each group will last approximately 6 weeks, meeting one day a week for 30 minutes.
SEL Family Night
NEW DATE: Thursday March 4th, SAME TIME: 6:00-7:00
Our SEL Family Night is going virtual this year!. I am so excited to have Shana Merlin from Merlin Works Improv. with us. She will be leading us through fun activities we can engage in with our kids. Helping adults remember what it means to "play" and encouraging kids to play without boundaries. Shana will be with us on Thursday March 4th from 6:00-7:00 via zoom.
