Counselor’s Corner Dear Parents: I teach Character Education each week to every class in our school for one 45 minute class period. I teach 9 principles throughout the year. This month I’m teaching about Kindness. October is Courage. After that the monthly principles are: self-control, forgiveness, respect, diligence, loyalty, honesty, and confidence. I will typically read the students a story about the topic, we will discuss it as a class, then we will do an activity or play a game involving the principle. As always, if I can be of any assistance to you or your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is: Lisa Wright, School Counselor
