Classroom Counseling

In January and February, K-6 students worked on careers in classroom counseling. Students explored the 16 career clusters and areas of interest to them. Students were able to connect how basic math and reading skills are actually skills that will help them not only be successful in their careers but also in daily living. Older students further explored college and degree options and we discussed how having some type of post-secondary education will allow more opportunities for them in their futures. Sixth-grade students continue to take part in the All Stars curriculum (a drug, alcohol, and other risky behavior prevention program) where they learn about how their reputations and habits can affect the futures they have. Students are learning how to build positive reputations and create positive habits to ensure they are on track for the futures they want, and how drugs can negatively impact all areas of their life. This week students played a game titled, "Opinion Poll Game" where they got to learn about how other students in the class viewed risky behaviors. This game helped students see that their classmates had many of the same thoughts and opinions about how risky behaviors can damage their goals for their futures and were things they didn't want in their lives. In March, students will begin working on conflict resolution in the classroom. Problem-solving is a big part of our PRIDE theme this year and students are learning about how to be effective problem solvers!
