Counseling Lessons in November

Counseling Lessons in December

Big picture

K-5th

Starting this month, we will begin covering a safety tip of the month for the remaining school year. In December all of our students learned about personal safety. This safety tip was covered by our monthly counseling lesson where students learned that personal safety is how we keep ourselves safe. Students discussed unsafe and safe situations and what makes a situation unsafe. This also included how unsafe situations make us feel and how to protect ourselves. Students expressed what they should do in unsafe situations: tell a trusted adult. Students identified who their trusted adults are and were reminded that as a Pepcat we want to make sure all students are staying safe. This lesson is mandated from State Law due to Erin's Law being implemented in TN. Erin's Law requires schools across the state of Tennessee to provide age-appropriate instruction to students PreK-12 on personal body safety and abuse. If you would like to find out more information on this law, click here. For more information on how to prevent child abuse (including sexual, mental, and physical abuse), feel free to visit the Stop Child Abuse website here.

Giving Tree

Thank you so much for donating items this year to our annual Giving Tree. These scarves, hats, gloves, and socks will be going to our students in need so they can stay warm over the next cold weeks. We had so many items donated that we had to take some things off the tree just so it didn't fall in the floor! We appreciate you all!

Winter Break Crisis Resources

As we all prepare for the upcoming two weeks of winter break, we wanted to remind you of a few resources in case you need them while school personnel are unavailable. We wish you a relaxing and enjoyable break!
