Counselor's Corner

Growing up in today’s world has changed drastically over the last 20-30 years. However, the fundamentals of a healthy childhood haven’t changed a bit. Healthy boundaries and limits, responsibility, delayed gratification and connection are still really important to the mental health of our children.


This article highlights some of the ways we as parents can go “back to the basics” in our parenting techniques as we work to raise our children to be happy, healthy and successful in all areas of life.

October 2nd is Walk/Ride Your Bike to School Day

We are excited about the upcoming Walk or Ride Your Bike to School Day. On October 2nd, we encourage parents to participate with their children in walking or riding their bikes to school. We will announce our percentage of students who participated at the end of the day! Last year we had 50% of our students walking or riding their bikes to school. Our goal for this year is 60%.


Thank you in advance for helping us reach this goal!
