Happy New Year! We hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and the break!
We'd like to welcome Ms. Pasquale to the Salk Counseling Department! Ms. Pasquale is filling in for Ms. Steward and will be covering 7th grade.
After School Homework Help
Please encourage your children to stop by Guidance if they’d like to work with a Homework Helper for any subject! For Quarter 2 we’ve definitely had less students available to tutor compared to Q1, but we do have Helpers that are ready, willing, and able to work with your students. Stop by Guidance and we'll set you up with a tutor to help your child with HW and studying!
On Thursday, January 10th at 7pm, Ms. Lyons and Ms. Pasquale will hold a Parent Workshop for current 6th and 7th grade parents to explain the 7th and 8th grade curriculum. They will be reviewing sample 7th and 8th grade schedules and will discuss course options for both grades.
On Thursday, January 17th from 6:45 to 7:45, the following workshop is offered for parents during Harry Potter Night:
"Addressing Emotional Wellness in Middle School"- The school Social Workers are offering an evening workshop and will be presenting about their classroom workshops held in each grade that raise emotional awareness and offer tools for building coping skills. Parents are invited to come learn about the tips and strategies that can help their children strengthen their emotional skills through the middle school years.
