Guidance Newsletter

End of Year 2021

Hello Students and Families!


We think it is safe to say that we are finally in the “home stretch”! Though it has been a school year full of new ways of learning, uncertainties, and charting unfamiliar waters, our Frankford School Community has persevered.


The month of May not only brings flowers in bloom and promises of warmer, sunnier days ahead weather wise, but it is also Mental Health Awareness Month. Taking care of our mental health and emotional wellbeing isn’t always easy even in the best of times, but it is especially important to bring attention to ways we can care for ourselves and others after the challenges we have faced since last year.


As we have included in past newsletters, there are various activities and tips that we hope are useful to you and your families. In addition, we have included some upcoming meetings and events available in our county that highlight mental health awareness.


As always, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
