Counselor's Corner for the Week of April 20th - April 24th

It's hard to believe, but we're in the last full week of April already! The countdown has begun...or maybe it has just for me (for entirely different reasons)! 26.5 more days of students, if anyone is counting! It seems like there is still so much to do with such little time to get it all done!

I had mentioned this at the ERD last Thursday, but the PTO would like to know if teachers would prefer Scholastic Readers or a gift certificate for the Spring Book Fair. I'll send out a separate email with the voting button enabled in it. I did check with the PTO and they said that the decision would have to be a majority vote because they are unable to do both financially. They will try to do more fundraising before the end of the year if more people prefer the Scholastic Readers. I'll keep you posted!

The attendance bulletin board has been updated between the Music and PE rooms. If all students are here on time everyday, the entire class will get an extra recess at the end of the day on Friday, provided by one of the counselors. Ms Burkeen's class was really close last week! Hopefully, attendance will improve this week for all classrooms! Our school goal is 95% and we're hitting just below that. Last week was 93% for our attendance from Monday - Friday. We're getting close!
