I think I am 95% ready. A few more copies to make for staff handouts regarding Filling Buckets, and I will be 100% done. Whew.
Staff appreciation gifts for 5th grade staff are complete. Swedish fish inside favor bags that look like fish bowls with a card inside that reads SO GLAD WE'RE IN THE SAME SCHOOL and my website QR code on the back with my name and extension. They are actually cute!
When school actually gets started, I will give my teachers a brochure called GIFT...Guidance Information For Teachers. I saw that on someone's blog and ran with it. Great idea! I am a new counselor to the 5th grade staff, so I took the time to create this little introduction to what I do as school counselor, what they can expect from me, a little bit about me, and my contact information.
Along with the GIFT brochure, I will give teachers a full page that actually describes my counseling services/program in a bit more detail as well as information about the Bucket Filling Program I love to do with classes, parents, and staff.
That's all for tonight! I have a little girl who has her own back to school jitters whom I need to care for.
