Tip of the Day

Counselor’s Corner Tips of the Day for October 2017

  • “There is a difference between not knowing and not knowing yet.”  ~ Sheila Tobias
  • During Bullying Prevention Week – or anytime - think about having a conversation with your child about the steps he or she can take to help keep their school a bully-free zone.
  • Did you know that students can take courses through CCBC starting in 9th grade?  Talk to your child's School Counselor to learn more.
  • Reminder to all parents:  Magnet Applications for the 2018-2019 school year are available prior to November.
  • “In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” ~ Albert Einstein
  • A bystander is a person that sees bullying occur but doesn’t take action. Think about talking with your child about how to be a helper instead of a bystander.
  • Did you know that students in grades 7-12 meet with their counselor every year to create or update their 6-Year Academic Plan?  Talk to your child’s School Counselor to learn more.
  • Reminder to all 12th grade parents: The FAFSA is now open. Visit www.studentaid.gov to learn more.
  • “It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” ~ Confucius
  • October is National Bullying Prevention Month. Talk with your child about the ways he or she can be a positive leader in their school and in their community.
  • Did you know that this month elementary students are learning about bullying prevention?  Talk to your child’s School Counselor to learn more.
  • Does your child struggle with skills such as organizing their bookbag or getting their homework done?  Consider creating a step-by-step list and posting it on your refrigerator to serve as a reminder.
  • “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” ~ Walt Disney
  • Bullying can be both physical and verbal.  Consider talking with your child about how to handle different types of bullying situations.
  • Did you know that some colleges and universities have “fly-in” programs that will allow students to travel at no cost to visit their campus?  Talk with your child’s school counselor to learn more.
  • As we approach the end of the first quarter this is a good time to check in with your child about their transition into a new school year.  Talk to your child about how they are handling the academic, behavioral and social expectations of their current grade.
  • “If at first you don’t succeed . . . you’re normal!” ~ Kid President
  • October is National Bullying Prevention Month.  Talk to your child about ways that they can stand up for others and how it makes a person feel when someone stands up for them.
