  • The Future is Bright

    Posted by Nicholas Simmons on 9/12/2019 3:00:00 PM

    Hey there North Hi Mount.

    Pardon the construction on this page.  This is a new system for our district to let us counselors better communicate with parents, but it's going to take a bit for me to have things looking nice.

    As you know, this week we are celebrating positivity and conveying to our students and families that there is always hope in the future.  Over the next few weeks, I will be working with students in circles, helping them open up to each other and share their feelings.  This is a great way for me to get to know your children and to have them get to know each other.  Already we have had some great breakthroughs with students, and I love working with them!

    That being said, we always need to be on guard for changes within our children.  Minor changes such as changes in eating habits, sleeping habits, or mood can signify that a child may be feeling depressed.  If you notice any distinct changes in your child's behavior, never be afraid to ask them if there is anything wrong.  Often, a child with feeling of depression will close themself off until someone comes to them.  I'm sure we've all needed convincing that the future is bright at one point or another.

    I'm very excited to be working with your wonderful children.  If you ever need to contact me, my office number is 817-815-1515.

    Have a wonderful week!

    Hey everyone!

    We are very excited to have our annual career day this month on the 27th.  I can't believe we are already so close to the end of September.  Here are just a few of the occupations we will be presenting to our students:

    Android App Developer

    Stable Keeper

    Archaeologist

    Biowaste Disposal Company Owner

    Surgeon

    Those are just 5 of the 20+ professionals we will have on campus.  Make sure your kids come dressed up in the attire of their favorite/future career.

  • If you would like your child to participate in the Pack-A-Sack program, please make sure to contact me before are spots are filled.  Alternatively, you can download the document in the file library to the left and turn it in, filled out, to the front office.
