Mrs. K's Counseling Corner

  • Our "Essential 36" manner of the week: "Mind your own business."

  • Mrs. Castillo's 3rd grade class will be assisting with our morning announcements. This is a great way for our students to practice leadership skills and become confident communicators!

  • The BISD counselors have adopted the "7 Mindsets" curriculum. The lessons are broken down into grade levels, so the curriculum is age-appropriate. This year, we will focus on Mindset #5, "Attitude of Gratitude" and Mindset #4, "100% Accountable." For more information, please click on "7 Mindsets" . There are amazing resources for families and teachers and the district counselors are excited about all that the curriculum offers.

  • For some fun family activities around the area, click on "Kids Out and About" newsletter. Note: the newsletter is the October edition, but there are tons of ideas already listed for November.

  • November 13 is "World Kindness Day." This is a day that promotes the importance of being kind to each other, to yourself, and to the world. Mrs. K. will provide students with a kindness calendar so they can write how they have shown kindness. Of course, EVERYDAY should be "World Kindness Day" but we will have some extra activities on this day.

Brock Movie Day

Let's do a Brock Family Movie Day!! "Clifford, the Big Red Dog" is coming to theaters in November. This is a great opportunity to meet other Brock families. We could meet at the AMC Burleson 14, visit and watch the movie together. Students must be accompanied by a guardian and tickets can be purchased online. Please complete the Google form so I can gauge interest and then in next week's "Tiger Talk", I will list options for showtimes. I can't wait!
