JISD Counseling Weekly Newsletter

April 27th-May 1st

Welcome Students, Parents, and Staff

As we get closer to the end of the school year, we have been safe in our homes for 6 weeks. Our new normal is a different way of life. Reality is very different in each household. We hope that all items included in the newsletter are helping our JISD families. This week will be a great time to start practicing self- care and use some of the activities in the newsletter.
