Counselor's Corner


Online Safety

Counselors will be providing all students with information on how to be safe when using the internet. We want to share information and activities with you at home. As we all know, students are using technology now more than ever. They play games, learn and socialize using technology. It can be difficult to monitor what they are using and knowing how to speak to children about potential dangers they may come across. Some big words we talk about are private information, digital footprint, cyber-bullying and media balance. We recommend looking through resources below to reinforce certain safety measures with your children. The website Common Sense media also has specific information for each app your student may be using to teach you more about it and safety features you may not know about.  There are also some fun games where students can learn more about these concepts. You might want to even play them together as a family!

Respect Earns Trust

We are discussing Respect for All! One way we earn trust is through respecting one another. Important questions to ask goes as follows, "what does respect look like? sound like? and feel like?" Allowing your child to understand Respect through multiple lenses, while relating it to the theme of the month. The Guidance Department looks forward to engaging in conversation with the students to give everyone a voice!
