THE COUNSELOR’S CORNER-----DEC. 2012
WOW!!!! It is hard to believe that it is almost Christmas! We would like to say a “special thank you” to everyone who continues to support RES with their time and donations. These both help our school be a safer place to learn! We always appreciate support from our community and our parents!
Since the start of school, we have been busy with our DIBELS testing in Kindergarten, first grade and second grade. Results from our TCAP test this past Spring have been sent home with the fourth grade students as well as our SAT-10 results from last school year. Richland Elementary is in Good Standing with the state in the progress of our students! YAY!!!!
In guidance classes we have been discussing Listening Skills and the importance of this in learning. This is included in our Study Skills unit. Please encourage your children to listen carefully and pay attention in class.
We have also finished a unit on Fire Safety and are currently studying Being Healthy and Saying No to Drugs. We want to be healthy to do whatever we want to do in life!
After Christmas holidays, we will be starting a unit on the six pillars of Character, studying about using good manners, respecting others, and being a good citizen. (See if your children can tell you what the six pillars are!). We will, then, be exploring careers and how important learning in school is when a career is chosen. Getting along with others and having good character is also important.
After these units are completed, it will be testing time again!!!!!
Let’s make this a wonderful year!!!!!!!!!
