This week Mrs. Cheatham and Miss Edwards visited fifth grade classrooms to introduce 5th grade leadership! Fifth Grade Leadership is an opportunity for fifth grade students to help their BPE community by volunteering their fitness/recess time to help teachers and other adults around the school. Fifth grade students who complete three or more leadership jobs will earn a Leadership Pin in the spring. The leadership section of our SEL Website is still under construction, but by the end of next week all leadership jobs will be posted here. While fifth graders are responsible for keeping track of their jobs, parents may find it helpful to use this webpage to help their fifth graders stay on track.
Next week we will introduce our first Life Skill of the school year and begin our classroom counselor lessons. As always, we will keep our website updated with information about what we’re doing in classrooms and include some of that info here in the Counselor Corner, as well. Our hope in providing this information is that we equip parents with language and topics to help carry on the SEL conversation at home!
