School Social Worker

As we move forward into spring and the close of another school year, I would like to leave you with a challenge: goal setting!

I ask each parent to sit down with their child and set 2-3 goals to accomplish by the end of the academic school year. The goals do not have to be complex and should be attainable. Perhaps your child has desired to do better in math. Create a goal to obtain a 4 on at least one math test. Or maybe your child has struggled with reading. Create a goal for them to be able to read a level appropriate book, on their own, by the end of the year. If your child struggles with peer interaction, create a goal to have your child interact with a classmate outside of school or have your child join a club/team.

These are just a few examples of goals that your child can work towards. You and your child know where they need to grow the most, so guide them with making goals that are appropriate for them.

While creating goals remember to be SMART!

Specific

Measurable

Attainable

Relevant

Time- Bound

On a personal note, my husband and I are overjoyed to welcome our 3rd son. I will be on maternity leave for the remainder of the academic school year. It is my sincere hope that you will all enjoy a successful and happy end of the school year. While I will not be in the building to serve the students and parents directly, please know that I keep you all in my heart and prayers.
