Counseling

Thank you to everyone who participated in February’s SEL Theme: KINDNESS. All of our students learned the importance of “Filling Up Each Other’s Buckets” with kind acts (Kinder-3rd), as well as how to be “Inclusive” towards others in an effort to find value in our differences/diversity (4th-5th).


SEL Theme for March - RESPECT

Building off of last month’s Kindness ground work, Bobier students will be receiving lessons on how to be respectful towards one another. This will be demonstrated through treating others the way you want to be treated, being polite to others, and discussing problems in a way that makes others feel heard/understood.

Our motto this month: “Respect is a two way street...it should go both ways.”
