When the entire team sees itself as having a common set of goals and each member of the team understands what they add to the group, the best results are achieved.

Today’s message for National Random Acts of Kindness Week is about Kindness and empathy.  Kindness and empathy are very closely related: kindness is simply empathy in action. When we understand how someone feels and then do something about it, we are showing kindness. Even if you sometimes do not think that anyone notices when you are being kind, remember the words of the Ancient Storyteller, Aesop. “No act of Kindness, however small, will go unnoticed”.

Your Challenge today is to compliment 15 people!

From our KMS Counselors:

"Good morning. This is an announcement from  your school counselors, and this week, we are celebrating National School Counseling Week. One of our goals is to help you learn new skills to help you succeed. This week, we are focusing on collaboration.

 

 Did you know that we work with our principal and assistant principals every day to support you? Yes, we spend a lot of time “in the principal’s office.” Though we have very different tasks to accomplish each day, our most important job is working together to help all of the students in this school succeed. And guess what? Sometimes we have different ideas. When that happens, we find ways to compromise. 

 

Former defense secretary Colin Powell said we should “never lose sight of the need to reach out and talk to people who don’t share your view. Listen to them and see if you can find a way to compromise.” Don’t compromise your values, of course, but how can you expand your knowledge and understanding by listening to someone else? 

 

We encourage you to challenge yourself to seek out other opinions. What you’ll find out is that you end up with a better solution – one that satisfies everyone. Want to role play about asking for opinions that are different from your own? Come see us and let’s chat. Now, go have some honest conversations and a great day!

 

There is an UPDATED Menu for lunch today: 

Grilled Cheese OR Fresh Baked Pizza with Tomato Soup and a variety of fruits.

"Good morning. Mrs. Hernandez- Washington, Mrs. Zecchini and Ms. Moses,  your school counselors, want to share that  today is the first day of National School Counseling Week. The theme of this year’s week is “Better Together.” To help support your success, we often collaborate with other school staff, such as our school psychologist, school social worker and school nurse. We are all here for you, working together to serve your needs as you navigate school and life. Just like we do, you often work in teams to achieve a common goal.

 “Little Women” author Louisa May Alcott said, “It takes two flints to make a fire.” You’ve probably also heard the phrase “two heads are better than one.” 

Look around, how are you working in teams today? Are you collaborating on school projects, helping a friend or playing a sport? We are so much stronger together – and, sometimes, you encounter work that requires more than one person to complete.

 As your school counselor, We are here to help you build your teamwork skills so you can be successful in groups both big and small. If you’re struggling with teamwork, come see us, and let’s talk about how you can develop these skills. We work on our 

teamwork skills every day. Have a great Monday
