September Counselor Class Visits
At the beginning of this school year, counselor visits are focused on being a good friend.
For younger students, we are discussing how to make friends and what a good friend does and does not do. We read part of the book How to Be a Friend by Laurie Krasny Brown and Marc Brown.
How to Be a Friend: A Guide to Making Friends and Keeping Them by Laurie  Krasny Brown
With older students, we go more into depth on what makes a good friendship with the book Our Friendship Rules by Peggy Moss. In small groups, they choose which friendship rules mean the most to them. Talk to your child about what they learned!
Examples of Friendship RulesOur Friendship Rules: Moss, Peggy, Tardif, Dee Dee, Imre Geis, Alissa:  9780884482918: Amazon.com: Books
