January Counselor's Corner

Our core value for the month of January is self-control. Mrs. Hoffman will be visiting classrooms this month to introduce this value.  A parent newsletter will be sent home with the students that provides discussion topics for children and their parents.  The following Phase Summary provides families with information to embrace the current phase of their child with regards to the core value of self-control. 

In the elementary years, a child develops skills that equip their future.

Here are three questions that all elementary-aged children are asking:

1. Do I Have Your Attention?

In Kindergarten and first grade, a child craves adult attention and approval.

2. Do I Have What It Takes?

In second and third grade, a kid wants to know how their abilities compare with peers.

3. Do I Have Friends?

In fourth and fifth grade, a kid begins to prioritize friends in a new way.

Relationships create a safe place to resolve who we are. Relationships bring clarity. When kids see themselves the way a loving adult sees them, it changes how they see themselves.
