Blackshear SEL & Caring Corner

Week of 9/13-9/17

Dear Yellow Jacket Families,

This week's SEL focus is identity. The past 2 weeks we've been learning who's in our class, respect, and as we continue we’re going to consider more who we are as individuals. We hope this will support our work of learning together and growing as a community. We will be spending this week getting to learn a little more about you and what makes each of you unique. Each of you is essential to this class/school community. Think about something new you’ve learned about me or a classmate this week?Think about something new you’ve learned about yourself?

For these upcoming weeks for class guidance lessons, I will be introducing myself to the students, showing them what the the counseling office looks like and where it's at, describe what my job is, and how I can help them. I am looking forward to seeing their beautiful faces!
