Welcome back for another exciting school year here at SFE!  August 20th is our first day of school for the 2019-20 school year and we are thrilled to have so many of our Sharks returning as well as the arrival of lots of new faces.  As the school counselor, I will be inviting all brand new 1st - 5th graders to a "New Sharks" luncheon with me.
    Students will also be receiving a variety of guidance lessons in the classroom, which will incorporate the Super 8 character traits. We will cover 4 of the 8 character traits this year. Our first skill to cover will be Optimistic Thinking/Growth Mindset.  These lessons are designed to help students be successful socially, academically, and behaviorally. 
    I am always available to work with students individually on any issue that is impacting their school experience. Individual counseling will be solution focused and we will meet for 5 to 6 sessions at most.
    Groups will also be conducted this year with students needing a little more support in the area of social skills, dealing with feelings, and family transitions.  My purpose is to serve the school as a whole, which includes students, teachers, and families.  Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or for support.  I look forward to a great school year!!
