Counselor Corner


“We all have different inspirations, but one goal: a better world.” -- Ernesto Arguello

Citizenship and service education will help develop “soft skills” that future employers look for when hiring employees, such as integrity, teamwork, and communication. Teaching citizenship to our children will help to create informed citizens who take responsibility for their actions and contribute positively to their communities with generosity and through SERVICE. During the month of December, we will discuss the importance of SERVICE and generosity.


  • works to help the community – either with others or by themselves
  • obeys rules and laws
  • respects other people’s cultures
  • conserves natural resources
  • is concerned about the welfare of others


Model good citizenship to your child by voting, attending school board meetings, or visiting historical monuments. Discuss with your child how each of these things contributes to being a good citizen.


Work together to think of people in your family or community who you can give a small gift to. This can be a handmade craft, baked goods, something from the dollar store, etc. As a family, make/buy the gifts and deliver them to special people in your life.


Become active in your community. Encourage your child to participate in community service projects both within and outside of school, such as recycling, playground cleanup, or cleaning kennels at an animal shelter. These opportunities become even more meaningful when you as a parent volunteer with your child and discuss the importance of contributing to your community in a positive way.


Here are some discussion points to help you talk about service and generosity with your child:

  • What do you think service and generosity mean and why are they important?
  • Tell me about a time someone was generous to you. How did it make you feel?
  • Is providing a service (or being generous) something that is hard for you or easy? Tell me why you chose that answer?
  • What would the world be like if everyone were more generous about providing services for their communities?
