School Counselor Update
Mrs. Jaime Poirier --Welcome Back Issue--
Meet Mrs. Poirier
As set forth by ASCA (American School Counselors Association), my monthly lessons will focus on three domains: Personal/Social, Academic, and College /Career. It is my goal through these monthly lessons that students will continue to grow as respectful, productive, goal-oriented citizens in our community.
In addition to working with all students during monthly lessons, I will also host small groups and meet with students individually. When I meet with your child, I reassure them that our conversation is confidential, which means it stays between the two of us. However, I do encourage them to let his/her family know that we met. Rest assured, I do contact you should it be a situation that needs your attention.
As we all know, life sometimes has its way of sending a curve ball our way. Should you or your child need my assistance throughout the year with any home or school issues, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
School Wide Expectations
Starting Our Year With Positive and Clear Expectations!
September Class Lesson at a Glance!
Over dinner this month, ask your child these questions:
1. What does confidentiality mean?
2. What are two situations where a student might need to come talk to me?
3. What are some of the activities I will be offering this school year?
I look forward to seeing your children during October when we will celebrate National Bullying Prevention Month. In early October we will learn how to put a STOP to disrespectful behavior by using the STOP, WALK and TALK protocol.
Remember to UNITE against bullying on Wednesday, October 19 and WEAR ORANGE!
