In October, I will start to run lunch groups. I have a professional goal of having lunch with every child at least once over the school year to build relationship and rapport. I also run friendship groups and lunch bunch that meet every week for 8 week sessions, please let me know if you are interested in having your child attend.
I have had a chance to look at the data provided by the parent surveys that went home on the first day of school. Thank-you for returning your survey, this information is very valuable when planning for the year. Below is some of the data provided about the issues that parents find important to learn at this level in guidance class.
