Dear Fairfax Families,
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Fairfax Elementary School! I am thrilled to be in my fourth year working with such an outstanding group of students, teachers, staff, and parents that make up the Fairfax community!
As the School Counselor, my goal is to ensure that every student attending Fairfax has a successful school experience as well as the opportunity to develop socially and academically. This year, I am excited to be a part of the roll out of Conscious Discipline at Fairfax, a comprehensive evidence-based self-regulation classroom management program that integrates social-emotional learning and discipline. As a part of this, we will be focusing on Composure skills and teaching students breathing techniques to help student calm, focus, and be ready to learn. We will also be focusing on developing a greater sense of community through developing our School Family. Over the course of the school year, I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups based on student need, and collaborating with parents, teachers, and staff in order to support and meet the needs of Fairfax students and families.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have concerns regarding your child. I can be reached at (216) 320-4804 or firstname.lastname@example.org or simply stop by my office. I always have time to support you and your student(s)!
I’m looking forward to a great year at Fairfax Elementary School working with you and your student(s).
