    April 2020

    Happy Spring! We hope that you all are staying safe and healthy! We miss everyone!  Please continue to check the Counselor's Corner weekly to see new activities.  If you want to share something, e-mail us!  This month, draw a picture of you using one of your ZONES tools or doing an act of kindness. E-mail it to your counselors and we will post it under the Pictures by South Side tab on the Counselor's Corner webpage. If you want people to know your name and teacher, don't forget to include it!

    Dear South Side Elementary School Students and Families, 

    The South Side school counselors hope you and your family are doing well during these uncertain times.  We have been thinking of you and hope that you and your family are staying healthy, positive and keeping busy!

    We would love to hear from you - how are you spending your extra time?  Are you reading any books?  Playing your instrument or putting your creative art skills to work?  Maybe you are trying a special recipe or putting puzzles together.  Feel free to email us and share how you are spending your time. We’d love to stay connected with you.  
      

    During these uncertain times, it’s important to practice mindfulness to take care of yourself.  Be sure to continue to get lots of sleep, go outside to get fresh air, and continue to eat healthy.  Create a ‘to do’ list for each day and follow a daily routine.  Get up, get dressed and get going! 

    Please check out the links we’ve provided on the right side of our webpage titled Mental Health Resources.  Lastly, if there is anything you need, please reach out.  We will respond as quickly as we can.


    Your South Side School Counselors,

     Missy Maugans : mmaugans@cdschools.org  and Nicole Snyder:  nsnyder@cdschools.org
