We hope this message finds you well and rested, as we launch into this 2022-2023 school year. The school counseling team believes in partnering with teaching teams and families to provide meaningful support to our students. This year we will focus on executive functioning skills and resources, which will be posted quarterly to this resource page. Adults can help develop these areas through “scaffolding” approaches that allow some practice before the child is able to perform the function on their own. Research shows the benefits of developing these areas of functioning. The four main pillars of executive functioning skills that we will be giving a lot of focus on this year are self-regulation, self-motivation towards non preferred tasks, self-evaluation and self-awareness. We look forward to partnering with you and watching our students grow in all areas.
Blessings of wellness to you and your families,
Your School Counseling Team
