Indian Hills Elementary
A Message from Mrs. Akin
Thankfulness always abounds this time of year — with good reason! There are lots of things to be thankful for. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be the school counselor at Indian Hills. Each day is an opportunity to learn and grow. I am so thankful for the relationships I have been able to build with many of my students. I am so grateful for ALL OF OUR CHIEFS. We are all walking side by side daily in our journeys together in becoming the best versions of ourselves we can be.
Counseling Activities at a Glance
Monthly Focus for Kindergarten-5th Grade: Responsibility
Teaching responsibility is important. Lessons this month have taught students what responsibility is. We have discussed the meaning of it, as well as what responsibility might look like and sound like in real life. We discussed responsibility at school, home and in the community. This is a life skill that they will need to practice throughout their lives.
