Social Worker Corner

Hello Tiger Paw Families,

Showing Understanding and Empathy, Sharing, and Being Generous are the themes for our social-emotional learning for the month of December. Some of the books that I will read to our students will be:

  • A Little SPOT of GIVING (a story about sharing and generosity)
  • A Little SPOT of SADNESS (a story about Empathy and Compassion)
  • When Sophie's Feelings Are Really, Really Hurt

I have included a link to a flyer from First Baptist Church regarding their clothing ministry. If your family is in need of clothing, please contact me to help with the referral. Clothing is available for ALL members of the family. If you would like to donate clothes, there are instructions on the flyer.

Please contact me if you have any questions regarding the lessons or books being shared with your child or if you may need help with finding resources for you and your family in our community.
