I would love for you to take a moment to complete the Parent Guidance Survey I have created. Due to the growing needs of the students that I serve, I am attempting to obtain more information of which services you and your children would benefit from most. This feedback will allow me to continue to provide a Comprehensive Counseling Program at Grand Mound Elementary. To take the survey-click this link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/VYRDQHM by 10/01/2013. This link was also sent to those of you with an email on our database.
Thank you in advance for your valued support of the program.

Another school year has begun! Is your child ready and excited to jump back into school? The first week can be both exciting and stressful. There are a few key things you can do to help your child prepare for a successful transition from the laid back rules of summer to the routines of the school year.
- Talk about your child's new teacher and classmates in a positive way to show them you are excited about the new school year.
- Attend open house, meet the new teacher and explore the school and classroom. Knowing ahead of time where to go and meeting a few classmates goes a long way to quell back to school jitters.
- Adjust your child's bedtime to correspond with an earlier wake up time if they have gotten in the habit of sleeping in during the summer. Keep in mind that kids need more sleep then adults, typically about ten hours a night.
- Set up simple routines to help the "morning rush" and "homework hour" slide by with ease. Checklists can be a great tool to help kids keep track of tasks independently. Stress can be greatly reduced by breaking up what needs to be done each day in small chunks.
Check out these websites for printable checklists and more ideas on how to support a new and exciting school year.
Here's to a great year!
