Counselor's Corner

Welcome to Counselors Corner!!!  

Welcome to a new school year!  I hope this school year is a successful one for all of our students.  I am happy to be back at P.S. 127 and I hope to be a helpful resource to our students, staff and families.
You can help make this school year a great one for your child as well.  Here are a few tips to get you started to help your children succeed.
-Follow a routine.
A routine at home will help children with their schedule at school.  For example, every day after school your child washes their hands, eats a snack and begins their homework.
-Promote Independence
Say "you can do it!"  when your child asks for help with something you know they can complete on their own.  This will encourage the independence students need in the classroom.
-Building attention span
Have your child attend to tasks for 15 - 20 minutes at home.  This will help them practice doing class work for expected period of time.
-Recognize effort
Praise your child for trying!  Even if the answer is incorrect, praise is important.  Children need to know that their effort is appreciated.  Positive reinforcement is something every child needs.  For example, "It seems like you worked really hard on this, you got most of it right... keep up the good work!"
-Have conversations
Children want to share experiences.  Let your children share their school day experiences with you.  Listen to them, and respond.  Having conversations with your children shows them your present, you care and you're interested. 
 
We have some great things coming up this September!  We are kicking off our first fundraiser on 9/30/16.  P.S. 127 Goes Gold For Pediatric Cancer Awareness.  Wear Gold/Yellow on 9/30 to show support!  Small donations are appreciated, all proceeds go to the Go For The Goal Foundation.
 
October will also be a busy month, here are our events  to look forward too:
Denim & Pink Day
Sock-Tober
Stomp Out Bullying Month
We also welcome the Abra-Ca-Bully Assembly to our school on October 13th for an Anti-Bullying Assembly for our 1st & 2nd graders.
 
Memo's will be going home with more detailed information.
Stay Tuned =)

As we move into the new school year, there are many wonderful events coming up. Please make sure to check the school calendar so no events get overlooked. To our 5th grade parents please make every effort to attend the middle school open houses so when the time comes, it will be useful for you and your child to make a decision.
