Thanksgiving break is almost here!

Wow time is flying and Thanksgiving break is almost here!  I can’t believe it. Last week was a busy week for me with a trauma response call to start off my week on Monday. I also had lessons in several classrooms for the trait of the month which is “Going for your Goals.” Friday was also our only school store for the month. Thankfully two people signed up to volunteer in January through the PTO website. I hope more sign up for future months.  This week I will be seeing my regular students that I see every week and start planning for the month of December. I will be doing lessons on “bullying” in December because we don’t have a Legacy trait of the month due to winter break.

I came across a couple of great websites when I was as the Colorado School Counseling Conference a couple of weeks ago so I thought I would share those. They are and  There are some great parenting classes that I put on my counseling website but they can also be found on I went to a break out session about it at the conference and it sounds like a great program that has helped many.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving break!


And the winners are…

The winners of the Red Ribbon Week door decorating contest were selected on Monday morning when three Student Council members joined me to judge the doors on a four point scale (4 being the highest and 1 being the lowest). We judged them for three different categories: student effort, creativity, and emotion/passion (how well the class was getting their message out). Mrs. Walker’s class won for K-2nd and Ms. Vitullo won for 3rd- 5th. Congratulations to the winners!  Mrs. Walker’s class enjoyed their pizza party this afternoon and Ms. Vitullo will let me know when they decide to have theirs.
