I look forward to working with your children this school year! Throughout the year, I will invite all the students to Lunch Bunch in my office. I hope to hear all about all the fun activities that your child is doing this year!
I will also visit the classrooms every month to encourage students to practice and develop their social skills, such as being a good friend to others, and being responsible. Please take a moment to look at the skills we will be working on each month, listed below.
I am at New Middletown Elementary on Mondays and Thursdays, so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your child this school year. My number is 812-968-3225 ext. 7514.
Throughout the year, we focus on making good choices. Through lessons, every student becomes familiar with the M.O.P. rules to help make good decisions.
M.O.P. stands for…
(Could this hurt me or get me in trouble?)
(Could this hurt others or get others in trouble?)
(Could this hurt property?)
All students practice asking themselves these 3 questions before making choices, to encourage making good choices.
The following are the monthly guidance themes for the 2016-2017 school year.
August: Bullying Prevention
September: Decision Making (M.O.P Rules)
January: Goal Setting
February: Test taking strategies/stress management/positive attitude
March: Study Skills/Cooperation
April: Anger Management
May: Conflict Resolution
