Classroom Curriculum

Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, I will try to be in your child's classroom about 6 times to facilitate guidance lessons. These lessons were designed to meet the American School Counselor Association national standards and are tentative to change based on the needs of students throughout the year. These lessons were created to be fun and engaging for your students. Please ask your student to share what was talked about during their classroom guidance time.
 
Below you will find a tentative curriculum for this year's classroom guidance lessons.
