Mrs. Kelly Kroeck
Dear North Side Students and Families,
I hope you and your family are doing well. Our 2020-2021 School Year is going to look a little different than normal; however, my job at North Side Elementary as the School Counselor has not changed! So whether you are present in the building, learning at home or a part of our CORE programming, I am here for you!
As the School Counselor, I am interested in helping to keep students connected with our school community. I primarily work with the social, emotional, behavioral and academic needs of our students. I accomplish this goal by meeting with students individually, holding small groups, delivering classroom lessons, and collaborating with parents, teachers and administrators. This year I will be accomplishing this task both in the building and virtually.
Knowing that the school year is going to be a little different than normal, it is important to work together keep a positive mindset. With that, take time to practice mindfulness and take care of yourself. If you have any concerns along the way, please let me know.
Please check out the links I have provided on the right side of my webpage if you would like more information on different resources and opportunities through North Side. Lastly, if there is anything you need, please reach out via email or give me a call. I will respond as quickly as I can.
Your NSE School Counselor,

Positive Mindset [Being willing to grow and see the positive in different situations]
Old Mindset: To New Mindset:
This year is going to be difficult. This year is going to be an adventure, and I will thrive!
Things are so hard for me. I can do it, I just need to keep practicing.
I can't get it. What am I missing?
I quit. I won't give up!
MINDFULLNESS ACTIVITIES [Being present and aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions]:
Blow bubbles and take deep breaths. Think about your feelings in colors - What Zone are you?
Tell an adult your feelings as a fun Weather Report. Take a walk and notice all the textures of objects around you.
Slowly eat a snack and notice how each bite tastes. Listen for your heart beat by being still and quiet.
Take a slow walk, putting one foot infront of the other.
