This is the second year in a row that Glen Arden is the only elementary in Buncombe County to have a student selected for the All-State Chorus!
NOTE FROM YOUR ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL MR. LISTER



Every Month a special group of staff members are chosen to be recognized on the bucket filler bulletin board.  The month of October we are recognizing kindergarten teachers and instructional assistants and our intensive intervention teachers Ms. Gayer and Ms. Moore and their instructional assistants
 
We ask staff, students, and parents to find a little time to write a kind note (bucket filler notes found in a bucket on the bulletin board) to recognize how much these staff members are appreciated!

A NOTE FROM YOUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR MRS. LINDSEY

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This week, Zachary Eden, our school social worker, and I will be starting our Bully Prevention Lessons.  We'll be including a home link in the TelegRAM for you to reinforce the skills and information we will be sharing. 

This 
week's lesson will focus on the definition of bullying and helping students to RECOGNIZE when someone is being bullied.

Bullying is when someone keeps being mean to someone else on purpose and that person hasn’t been able to get it to stop. Bullying is unfair and one-sided.

This week our students will practice being able to recognize bullying when it happens. These are clues that help you recognize bullying: It happens on purpose. It keeps happening. It’s unfair and one-sided. You haven’t been able to make it stop.

Our goal at Glen Arden is to Stop Bullying.  Thanks for your support in reinforcing our efforts at home. Please let us know if you have concerns.

Sincerely,
Beth Lindsey, School Counselor
A NOTE FROM YOUR SCHOOL COUNSELOR MRS. LINDSEY

I am excited to be starting groups that are specifically designed to meet the needs of elementary school students.

The group I am currently forming is a group for 1st,  2nd and 
3rd grade students focusing on friendship skills, communicating feelings effectively and encouraging positive decision making.

The construction of this group curriculum is compiled from various resources including: Connected and Respected, Ken Breeding & Jane Harris, The Zones of Regulation, Leah Kuypers, Think Social, Michelle Garcia Winner, and Progress Cards, Helping Students overcome obstacles to help them achieve greater success, Scott Ertle.
 
The purpose of this group will be to help students develop personal awareness, assertiveness, self-respect, and to cultivate empathy. It will be a confidential counseling group that is constructed based on the needs of participants.
 
This group will be held for approximately 6 sessions, and will meet one time per week during the school day.  The schedule will be arranged with teachers in order to respect academic time.
   
Small groups provide an atmosphere where students are able to share their experiences and connect in new ways with their classmates.  Also, they are a wonderful opportunity to create an environment where students can learn and grow from positive interactions with their peers.   

If you have any questions about the group, or would like your child to participate, please contact me, Beth Lindsey, beth.lindsey@bcsemail.org.

VOLUNTEER RAM TEAM:
 

Join the VOLUNTEER RAM TEAM and make a difference with children at Glen Arden.

Can you commit  one hour per week to work with identified children who need a bit of help and encouragement to succeed?  We hope you can join us THIS FRIDAY October 16 in the Counseling Classroom (Room 206) to learn more about this opportunity. 

Mrs. Sluder and I will be offering two times: 8:00 am and 2:00 pm.  Please email Beth Lindsey,
beth.lindsey@bcsemail.org, if you are interested and can attend.  We’ll have some light refreshments. 

Thanks, Beth Lindsey
