Counselor’s Corner 

Hey everyone!

I love stealing that line from Ms. Cooke.  Here’s what has been happening (and what I’m predicting will be happening as of Wednesday morning) for this week in counseling at Winterhaven.

Overall, our focus remains on mindfulness in the K-6 classrooms.  We will be wrapping Mindfulness up next week and moving into some acceptance and anti-bullying topics in January.  This week, in all but the K-1 classes, we will be watching this video and practicing a mindful body scan.

We will be just be doing the body scan in K-1 and a quick reading.  

8th grade had our whole class meeting Monday.  It went well.  If you could continue to reinforce the ideas of treating each other kindly and respectfully and speaking up if someone isn’t, that would be very helpful.  A larger lesson looming is the one around “snitching”.  

Both Grant High School and Franklin High School will be here shortly after Winter Break to have students choose classes.  Cleveland will be here sometime after that.  I’ll let you know.  

And our Equity Question of the week:  What does “fair” mean?  How are the words “equal” and “equitable” different?
