Counselor’s Corner:


Happy February, Glenmar Families!


February is Black History Month! To acknowledge all the diversity we have in Baltimore County Public Schools, we are focusing on appreciating and celebrating differences in our monthly guidance lessons. Kindergarten, first, and second grade students will identify their own positive characteristics and discover all of the ways they are unique and special. Third grade students will talk about cliques and the importance of including others. Fourth grade students will read a book about segregation, and discuss the different ways our society has evolved. Finally, our fifth grade students will identify their unique qualities and why is it importance to celebrate and honor diversity.


In keeping with this theme, I am also happy to announce our annual Black History Month Art Showcase is back! Throughout the month of February, students are invited to call on their creativity and submit a poster, drawing, painting, sculpture, or diorama that recognizes the role or impact of an important African American figure (past or present) in shaping our culture or history. All submissions will be displayed in the lobby throughout the month.


I look forward to seeing your submissions!
