Counselor Corner

This month our character trait is Responsibility. We will be focusing on this school-wide and during guidance lessons. October is also National Bullying Prevention Month so we will have some activities and initiatives tailored toward that as well. The first two months of school have been so busy, but I've enjoyed working with your students and getting to know them. We will have parent-teacher conferences later this month; if you need to meet with me, please let me know! Feel free to email me or visit my Facebook (@mcbrayercounselor) and website for more information.
