School Counseling

Counselor’s Corner:


Happy June, Glenmar Families!
It’s hard to believe we are in the final month of the school year! It has been such an incredible year at Glenmar. Your children have learned and practiced many important social skills in their guidance lessons such as how to make and keep friends, how to compromise and solve problems finding win-win solutions, cool down strategies for times they feel angry, scared, or upset, and how to be an upstander and so “NO!” to bullying. They have discussed how to use their Social Filter to filter their thoughts from their Thinking Bubble into their Speaking Bubble, and how to use self-control to make sure their ‘volcanoes’ do not ‘erupt’ while someone else is speaking.
As their school counselor, I am so proud to see how far your children have come since September. They truly exemplify the Glenmar Gator Code of Conduct, coming to school ready to be safe, respectful, and responsible scholars. As the school year winds down, please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions regarding counseling services for the summer months through our partnerships with The Children’s Guild and Bay Life. I look forward to seeing you all again next Fall!
Have a wonderful summer!
