Counselor’s Corner Being a parent is the most demanding job in the world, yet most of us train “on the job.” When things are going well, savor the moment. When things are not going well you may feel stressed and overwhelmed. Are you sleeping and eating too much or too little? Do you take your frustrations out on your kids? Do you feel out of control? Do you feel as if your children misbehave on purpose? Do you strike out physically or verbally when angry? Do you have chronically upset stomach or muscle aches, especially in your back and neck? Are you frustrated because your children don’t listen? Do you feel as if you pick on one particular child? Do you feel as if you can’t talk to your kids? If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you may need to reach out for help. Call your school counselor for resources and information.

FROM THE DESK OF MS. SANDHAGE:
IMPORTANT INFO FOR PARENTS The Fulton County School Board requires an Affidavit of Residence form as a part of the standard procedures for student registration and school attendance. As a result of this action, each year parents/guardians must complete an Affidavit of Residence form which will be maintained as a part of your child’s permanent records. Failure to comply with county policy could result in your child being withdrawn from their current school. Residency Verification Officers will be monitoring the validity of the student residency information in accordance with board policies and procedures. Forms may be downloaded at www.fultonschools.org or pick one up from the front office. Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter. It has been a pleasure working with you and your child during the 2012-2013 school year.
