Letter from the School Counselor

Hello, I’m excited to be back at John Malcom supporting our students, families, staff, and community.  Starting in September I will be going into all classrooms teaching the Second Step program, starting with Skills for Learning, to reinforce the teachers' expectations of all students. During October and November, the focus will continue on with Skills for Learning along with some Problem Solving portions of Second Step.  For more information on The Second Step Program, you can use the following link. 

Second Step website 

If you are interested in learning how to connect Second Step at home and implement the concepts in the home setting please let me know and I can provide home links for the current lesson.
*Please note that not all lessons have home links.
The Second Step program increases kids’ school success and decreases problem behaviors by teaching them skills for learning—such as paying attention, listening, and sitting still—as well as how to manage their emotions, solve problems, and make friends. All these skills help kids do better in school and in life.
I look forward to helping your students have a wonderful 2018-19 school year.
