School Counseling

Dear Glenmar Elementary Parents and Guardians,

 

What a year it has been!


As I said last month, it is wild to look back at all the things we have gone through together as a school community this year. We came out on the other side of it stronger than ever, and ready to take on any challenge thrown our way. I am so proud of each and every one of our scholars for
    persevering through several very difficult transitions into virtual and hybrid learning. No matter what, they showed up each day on Google Meet or in person, ready to learn. It has been incredible to observe how seamlessly our students who returned to the building fell right back into the routine of the school day, like they hadn’t skipped a beat. Our scholars are truly resilient.

 

This month, there are no classroom guidance lessons for your children. However, all of the previous lessons are still available in the School Counseling Corner folder on your student’s homeroom teacher’s Schoology page. Please feel free to go back and revisit lessons and continue to have those important conversations at home that build their social skills and decision-making skills. It is my sincerest hope that the counseling lessons your students received this year will further help to promote their social emotional, academic, and career development. If you have any questions about the school counseling program at Glenmar, do not hesitate to contact me via email at jplatt2@bcps.org.

 

Over the next two months, I encourage you to reset and recharge! Be sure to practice self-care and remember to prioritize health eating and getting a full night of sleep.

 

Take care of yourselves and have a wonderful summer break! I look forward to seeing you next Fall!

 

Ms. Platt
