Classroom Guidance

September:

The students learned about a new conflict management technique called "Drop the Rope." It encourages self-control, staying true to yourself, and being mindful instead of emotional during disputes. We had a lot of fun using a tug of war game to demonstrate there cannot be a push pull action if you do not hold the rope! 

October:

The students learned emotional intelligence by first identifying "uncomfortable feelings." Most students at this age only know happy and sad. The second part of the lesson was making Fire Breathing Dragons to demonstrate one coping skill to use when mad or frustrated. The students learned just how hard a deep breath must be for it to actually help during times of stress. I am sure you saw it come home!

October:

Classroom guidance was a BLAST in October! Children at this age typically operate under three emotion sets throughout a day, anger, sad, and happy. Through the use of ipads the students were challenged to learn new emotions and how to read those emotions in others. They essentially created their own emojis which were printed out and hung in the hallway by the guidance office door.

Upcycle That Tinora Spirit Wear!

This year the Elementary School Counseling Department wants to try something new. Kids take great pride in where they go to school and love wearing their Tinora gear! The problem for us parents is they grow so FAST! I would like to try an upcycle/recycle program here at TES so you have a place to donate your used gear, and also pick out something in the next size up!

How it works is simple. You send in your old items that don’t fit anymore (anything that can be washed and dried) with your child to school. Once we get a large number of items; they will be offered to the kids at different times during the year at no cost to you! Don’t worry if the gear is from 1995, or if the letters are all cracked and missing, those shirts might just become upcycled into necklaces or ponytail scrunchies.

You don’t even have to donate to pick out an item. It’s totally free, no strings attached, there will be no record of who donated what. They will just drop it off to Mrs. Phipps, it will be cleaned, and recycled. All sizes are welcome!!

Lets show our Tinora Pride!!

WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
