Guidance – – CHP is committed to developing social skills and a positive attitude. The Guidance Counselor meets with students from Preschool through Grade 8 to help them transition into school routines. Older children meet in smaller “Lunch Bunch” groups to discuss specific issues of concern. By Middle School, students feel comfortable enough that they reach out to the Guidance Counselor on an as needed basis. At all levels, students are given strategies about how to interact with other students, to recognize and deal with conflict in a healthy manner.
Has your child ever come to you saying, “I don’t have any friends at school!” or “Nobody likes me!”?
Perhaps your child cannot (or will not) articulate her worries and concerns about her social life but has become more moody, self-critical, and withdrawn, or doesn’t want to go to school in the morning. These can all be signs that your child might have trouble making and keeping friends
How many times in the last week alone has your child said: “I am so bored!” Maybe you were busy making dinner and could not play with him, or she had plans to go outside and play, but the weather changed to an ice-cold drizzle and playing outside wasn’t an option anymore.
Once a month, the students, parents, and teachers take time out to drop everything and read. The children look forward to this monthly program and are excited to read and share a good book with a friend or parent. This program has brought smiles to all of our readers.
