Counseling News

Hello Reynolds Family,

We have been invited to participate in an amazing county-wide project to set a new Guinness World Record by creating 110+ miles of inspirational paperchain. Using recycled/reused paper students will write a message of love and hope for the world. Reynolds Elementary has committed to creating a ¼ mile inspirational paperchain. To accomplish this goal, we are asking each student to make 9 Love Links.
We have about a month and a half to accomplish this goal. I am asking families if they have any recycled paper, cereal boxes, or paper bags if they can drop them off at the front office. We will have a team that will be cutting out Love Links for students to decorate.

We will be meeting on November 13th at Carlsbad state beach to attempt to break the Guinness World Record. Students and families are invited to this event. More information regarding the event will be provided at a later time.

Attached you will find a flyer for more info and how to create Love Links.

I am also adding my Counselor Corner flyer.

Have a nice Sunday.
