My Students

The students at my school are bright rays of sunshine! They are dreamers, thinkers, creators, and budding leaders of the future who are eager to learn. We are a diverse K-5 campus providing unique opportunities for students to interact with each other; such as Kind Kids Club, afterschool enrichment classess, family events sponsored by the PTA, and performing arts.

Our school is nestled in a suburban neighborhood and our families work hard to create a strong sense of community.

Our school is also unique in that our campus houses a comprehensive preschool program. We are in our third year of having a school counseling program, which many students benefit from individually as well as collectively.

My Project

The Guidance Garden is intended to be a counseling center to help meet the social and emotional needs of students. When students are emotioanlly activated and need a calming space, the room dividers are intended to provide privacy. The books, emotion stones, and board games are intended to provide hands-on social and emotional learning expeirences for students. The timer will be used to help students develop self-regulation skills and instill independence.

The Guidance Garden will ideally be a place that fosters self-esteem, interpersonal skills, and readiness to learn.

WIth your help we can obtain the tools to make The Guidance Garden a comforting place for students to excel in all aspects of their development.
