A Note From our counselor, Ms. Aronowitz
The last few years have been unusually difficult, and some students may have experienced social/emotional setbacks as a result of the pandemic. Please find below some social/emotional learning resources that families will have access to over the summer. In addition, Fulton County Schools and Rethink Ed have partnered to provide our families access to our online Student Success Skills (SSS) program. FCS’s SSS program provides videos and activities for both adults and children to support students social and emotional wellbeing. Families will have access to strategies and tools that will help parents/caregivers and students recognize and manage emotions, build stronger relationships, and develop skills to lead happier and healthier lives. Instructions for how to access Rethink Ed are attached.
