If you have a daughter in grades 3-8 then we have a program for you! Mrs. Beaulieu, Ms. Kenner and Ms Reed will be presenting information and the registration process on March 14 at 6 pm in the Danville cafeteria. We will provide pizza and salad so we hope to see lots of you there! Registration forms will be available in the Guidance Office next week! There are two programs - Girls on the Run for students in grades 3-5 and Girls on Track for students in grades 6-8. Girls on the Run is a nationally known and highly recommended curriculum based program that builds girls self-esteem and encourages them to run a 5K at the end. Being a runner is not required, believe me! See you Thursday!
In my line of work, there can never be too much kindness or too many ways to show our appreciation for each other. In Guidance classes in recent weeks we have been discussing the concept of bucket filling. Thank you Pinterest for the thousands of ideas that can be found on this topic. I came upon this idea two years ago after seeing a book called "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" By Carol McCloud. I use the book and have developed lessons for K-6 using her other materials to talk about the concept. Here are a few examples of what students did . . .

It's National School Counseling Week and I wanted to give a shout out to my fellow school counselors who are working hard to make a positive impact on the lives of our students in schools across the country. I am feeling very appreciated today and wanted to say a public "Thank You" to Ms. B's 2nd grade class. They made me a beautiful banner and book to show their appreciation and I will treasure it always. Thank you to Danville School via Mrs. Amos for the beautiful flowers. And, last but not least, a big thank you to Ms Hawley and her 3/4 class for my gorgeous sign that adorns my office wall now. The little things in life make a big difference!
