Notes From Our Counselors
This month is Native American Heritage Month! This observance commemorates the rich histories, diverse cultures, heritage, and important contributions of all Indigenous peoples. We also take time to acknowledge the vast achievements of America’s original Indigenous people.
As a reminder, all students at BMS-Prairie receive social/emotional learning (SEL) lessons multiple times a year and during COLT time. In addition, all students have access to a counseling team member. If you ever have questions about our general curriculum or supports specific to your student, please feel free to contact a member of the Prairie Counseling Department.
