September

I hope this email finds everyone well and settling into the routine of the school year.
  It’s been exciting to see all the students over the last few weeks and especially fun to meet all our new students.  This school year is extra-special for me as my daughter started kindergarten in our town.

Being a school counselor I’ve read about the transition back to school but hadn’t experienced it firsthand.
  So yes, I’ve now witnessed the meltdowns over socks or ChapStick that really aren’t about socks or ChapStick.

For those of you experiencing this for the first time or those who could use a reminder that much of what we’re experiencing as parents of young students is normal, here are links to two blog articles about after-school restraint collapse.

Motherly: After-school restraint collapse is real – here’s how to help your child

Scary Mommy: After-school restraint collapse is real, and this is what it means
(There is some colorful language used.)

For those of you new to Stepney, I will teach a counseling lesson in each classroom four times spread out over the course of the year.
  At the bottom of my monthly emails will be a list of the most recent lesson for each grade level.

I wish all of you a great last weekend of summer and a fantastic school year!
