Happy Fall, Cooley Community! During the month of October, Guidance class will be focusing on our Character Counts pillar of the month, which is Respect. This year at Cooley we are taking our PBIS core values --- Respect Yourself, Respect Others, Respect Property --- very seriously, so it should be no surprise that this is the first Character Counts pillar to be discussed in class! We will also be continuing PATHS lessons related to the theme of respect and anti-bullying, since October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Check out the graphic below to learn more about the differences between bullying, teasing, and conflict. Finally, students will be introduced to mindfulness, meditation, and whole body listening. Learning these skills early can improve attention and focus, which is crucial to a successful school year!

Additionally, Group Counseling sessions will begin in October. Stay tuned for further details on this, permission slips will be coming home this month to be signed.

Hope you all have a wonderful October and a great start to the Fall season!
