I Miss Them So!

Help me give my students the chance to receive a letter in the mail to lift their spirits during this uncertain time with stamps, envelops, and colored pens.

My Students

Do you remember your days in elementary school? Well, I do, and nothing really stands out for me. At our school, we are creating a new environment where our students are proud to say where they attend. Our students have a sense of school pride and community. My students are very eager to come to school​ and learn.

Our students attend a Title I school, where all of the students receive one hundred percent, free or reduced-price lunch, and range from pre-kindergarten through fourth grade.

Many of our students have economic​ hardships, yet come to school each day and give their all. Many of our students experience things that are out of their control and seek help from me, their school counselor.

My Project

I left school on a Friday afternoon with lessons laid out for that Monday, as well as plans for an upcoming reward celebration for my students. As we all know COVID-19 hit us pretty hard and pretty fast and schools were closed. I need a way to connect with my students that is not technology-based.

Receiving a letter in the mail is always special!

My goal is to use the note card packs, stamps, and colorful pens to write letters to as many students as I can to lift their spirits in such an uncertain time. As the school counselor it is my job to continue to help with their social and emotional well-being however I can.
