Counselor Corner
 
As you know, we are using the Second Step program here at Glen Arden through guidance lessons. The Second Step program teaches children important skills for getting along with others and doing well in school. It also helps our school be a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn. By providing prevention and early intervention to children, we equip them with skills that are protective, reduce risk, and increase positive outcomes. 
 
To help make our school even more safe and supportive, a trained educator from Mountain Child Advocacy Center will be coming to our school the weeks of February 29 and March 7 to present lessons from the Second Step Child Protection Unit. In these lessons, students will learn three types of skills:

·         Personal Safety
·         Touching Safety
·         Assertiveness
 
If you have questions about the Child Protection Unit, you may contact your child’s school counselor or MCAC representative. You will be receiving a letter providing more specific information regarding the grade level topics.  If you DO NOT want your child to participate in these lessons, please complete, sign, and return the bottom portion of the letter.
 
Go online to SecondStep.org and log in with the activation key provided in your letter to get more information about what your child is learning and how you can help teach your child about personal safety.
