What an exciting year this is going to be!  I look forward to working with all the students and getting to know our new families. 

I will be offering anger management groups as well as social skills groups beginning this Fall. Parents, as well as teachers, may refer a child to either group.

WASD is continuing The Olweus Bully Prevention Program. This is the most researched and best known bullying prevention program available today. All WASD staff will be implementing the program's components.
 
The Big Bobcat Program will run again this year.  This program matches a school personel volunteer with a child that needs a one to one connection to make them feel more secure in the school setting.  Parent permission is necessary for a student to participate.

I will be getting acquainted with your children as I present classroom lessons. In K and 1st grade the lessons focus on identifying and managing one's feelings as well as frienship skills. In 2nd grade, videos teach conflict resolution, and in 3rd grade topics chosen by the classroom teachers will be explored. 
 
Wattsburg  district has entered into an agreement with Sarah Reed to have a school based mental health clinic.  Sarah Reed provides counseling at the school, during the school day for those children whose family has applied for that service.  Applications are available through the guidance counselor. Payment is through the family's insurance provider.
 Rainbows, a program for children who have experienced a loss
 is offered one day a week after school from October through February. A registration flyer for the Rainbows program will be sent home in the October newsletter.

Safe Journey will also present "Hands are Not for Hitting" to our Kindergarten students.
Crime Victims' Center will present Good Secrets/Bad Secrets to all K and 2nd grade classes. They also present to 4th grade on cyber safety.
Barber National Institute will teach all the students about disabilities through an assembly using puppets.
