We have been extremely busy here at Green Hills School with a number of exciting programs for elementary and middle school students, as well as families! Please read below to learn more about our recent programs as well as upcoming events for both students and parents!
My recent classroom lessons have focused on empathy, coping skills, and conflict resolution. I continue to facilitate small groups during lunches on a wide range of topics, from casual conversations to healthy friendships, to impulse control, to managing big emotions. If you think your child would benefit from being a part of one of my small groups, please let me know!
Please remember that I am here to support the students however I can. I am available to meet if a student needs help or just wants to talk! Don't hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way.

Green Hills School will be having a weeklong celebration of cultures with our first ever Multicultural Week from March 13 - 17th! Members of our Mustang Zone have been busy planning minilessons for our students in grades K - 3. They will visit homerooms to play games, sing songs and teach languages from around the world. Our Maschio's staff is putting together a menu for the week with different flavors from across the globe, and our 4th grade students will be inviting classes to visit their family history presentations.
Coping Skills for Children and Teens - Parent Presentation
Representatives from the Mental Health Association of Morris and Essex presented a virtual parent program focusing on coping skills for children and teenagers. They offered a comprehensive review of anxiety and depression, how these conditions present in children and teens, how parents can help, what kinds of communication strategies can be helpful for parents, and how emotion-focused and problem-focused skills can be helpful for children in dealing with stress. Thank you so much to all of our parents who attended this important presentation!
