Hello! My name is Ms Newell and I'm so excited to be working with you virtually this year! I will be providing you with counseling lessons. Each month we will focus on a different character trait. It is important that you also learn and practice important skills that help you manage emotions, be a better student, get along with others, and simply BECOME YOUR BEST SELF! Each week you will come to this page and then click on your grade level to access your virtual lessons. I hope that you enjoy them.

Each month we will focus on a different character trait. We will follow Chic-fil-A's CoreEssentialsValues. Each lesson topic is aligned to a CASEL Social Emotional Learning Comptency. The goal of classroom guidance is to support our children in developing social emotional skills that will help them better navigate life's challenges and ultimately lead more productive lives.
