    This month the school counseling department will be gearing up for our annual Holiday Assistance Programs sponsored by the Department of Social Services.  This program provides clothes, shoes, jackets and toys to families in need.  Last year we helped over 50 children and we're hoping to exceed that number this year!

     

    The student of the month breakfast for November was honesty and it was a huge success.  The students really enjoyed celebrating with their family members and being able to share the experience with them. I want to thank all of the parents that donated a food item. We couldn't have done it without you!. Our January breakfast will be held on January 31st and the word of the month is dependability.  We look forward to seeing you there!

     

     

     

    The counseling department has already started small groups for our students here at Moncure!

    Participation of students in a small group led by the school counself is an effective way to help children be more successful in school.  These successes are not only academic, but social and emotional as well.  Establishing positive relationships with peers and adults, developing empathy for others, coping with stress and community needs are necessary skills for well-being at home, in school, and in the community.  If you are interested in your child being a part of a small group please feel free to call Teresa Conde (School Counselor) at 540-658-6300 or email condetm@staffordschools.net
