Counseling Curriculum

Friday, September 6, 2019

This year there is a new counseling curriculum for grades K-8. Kindergarten through 5th grade will be using SecondStep. This is a social and academic learning curriculum. Students will occasionally be bringing home a homework sheet which helps them review the skill we are working on. It also gives parents an opportunity to see what the students are learning.

Grades 6-8 will be using Life Skills curriculum. This curriculum talks about healthy living, decision making skills, and goal setting.

If you have any questions about any of the curriculum or would like to preview it, please contact Ms. B at school at 852-2275 or email
