Wilber-Clatonia Student Support Services
School Counselor: Mrs. Amie Albrecht
Welcome back to school! It has been a long time since I have been in school and I look forward to getting back to a routine. Since I was last in school in January some things have changed in my life. My husband and I have welcomed another baby to our family. We had a son, Tanner in January. As challenging as COVID has been, I have truly valued all of the time we have spent together as a family. I hope that each of you were able to enjoy the extra time with your children.
As we head into our 2020-2021 school year, I would like to remind you that you can always visit my website to see what is happening in my office. The link is listed at the bottom of the newsletter. This is where I will continually update information of what is going on in the counseling office, information I am obtaining, and discussing topics that I feel are important to the students at Wilber-Clatonia.
Counseling Office Update:
In my office I focus on the whole student, but specifically I help students academically, socially/emotionally and personally. If you have concerns about your child in one or more of those areas, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. My email is also listed at the bottom of this newsletter. This is probably the quickest way to get in touch with me.
I work with students individually and in small groups. I have sent home permission slips for your child to participate in small groups, please return those as soon as possible. If you feel that your child could benefit from participating in individual or small group resources, please let me know and we will get something set up.
This year I will be visiting students in their classrooms once a week. During this time I will help support teachers with their SecondStep curriculum and we will also be working through social and emotional lessons. For students in K-2nd grade we will be doing our work paper/pencil and for students in 3rd-5th grade we will complete all of our tasks through Google Classroom.
As we head into this new year, I want to challenge parents and students alike to participate in the kindness challenge with me. On the second page of this newsletter is a coloring sheet with activities for your child to do with you. Once you get the sheet completed, please have your child turn it in and it will be displayed in my office. Students will receive a prize for completing the activities. Being kind includes being accepting, forgiving, and willing to see new perspectives.
I am looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year!
