4th and 5th graders are starting to learn recorders!

5th graders are starting to prepare for their December concert. The 5th graders will be performing the Mini-Musical based on Tchaikovsky’s Famous Ballet “The Nutcracker”.

Counselors Corner

We are beginning our lessons on Emotion Management this month. What this look like for each grade level:


recognizing common feeling in ourselves and by looking at others faces and body language. Management of our emotions through breathing techniques.


Being able to describe different emotions and why they are important. Emotions can give us helpful information of what is happing in our daily lives.


How do strong emotions influence our thoughts and actions? What situations make us feel strong emotions, and how can we identify a change that can make it easier to handle in the future?

Be on the lookout for a Talking Points for Home Practice ideas.
