School Counseling

Hello, Glenmar Families and Friends! 

I hope you had a restful spring break! This month in our guidance lessons, we are expanding our learning from emotional regulation to coping skills. Students in primary grade levels will be learning how to utilize various calm down strategies, such as breathing and writing in a journal. We will talk about what happens to our body when we worry, and how to cope when things happen that we have no control over. Intermediate students will learn about their social filter and why it’s important to keep their thinking bubbles and talking bubbles separate. Fifth graders will be going on a Sneak-a-Peek field trip to Middle River Middle to learn all about middle school life. Their lesson will be about making choices in school and in their future based on their interests and skills.

 As always, I enjoy seeing you when you come to Glenmar. Stop by the counseling office to say hi!
