The Children & Family Programs at the School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding and Development is now accepting registration for their Social Skills Program that begins 10/8/18. Social Skills is a fun prevention/intervention group that is open to all 5‐12 year‐olds who are struggling academically, emotionally, socially, and/or behaviorally, including those diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, and HFASD. There is also a junior counselor option for middle school children.
Each 60 minute Social Skills Program will focus on developing skills to promote emotional regulation and positive peer relationships. Children will participate in games, art projects, life skills, and recreational sport activities. The program will focus on Communication, Participation, Cooperation, and Validation. It will meet Mondays at 3:30 at Logan Farm Park in Acworth. For more information please contact Dr. Garefino at [email protected]
Hendricks Elementary wants to know who motivates you!
Is it a staff member who said something that made you smile, a student who has inspired you, a parent who has helped you ?
Nominate someone who has motivated you, to be Hendricks’ Motivator of the Week!
Nomination slips are located in the front office. Anyone can submit a nomination.
Thanks to the generosity of Austell Presbyterian Church and South Cobb Rotary Club, Hendricks is able to offer students and families Backpack Blessings, a weekend food program to assist in consistent and substantial nutrition.
HOW IT WORKS:
Parent/Guardians complete registration form and return it to the school counselors. Backpack Blessings forms can be requested by students or families from counselors, teachers, or front office staff. Do not hesitate to ask!
Counselor and staff assist the student in putting at least 5 food items in their backpack to take home and enjoy over the weekend. The items will consist mostly of individual portions to supplement weekend meals and have “child- friendly” preparation methods.
The program lasts throughout the year.
We are excited to be your school counselors again this year!
Counselors help you with so many things like:
- Improving self-concept
- Improving peer relationships
- Improving communication with adults
- Learning problem solving models
- Improving family relationships
- Achieving academically
- Resolving conflicts
- Expressing feelings and emotions
- Learning to become lifelong learners
We look forward to assisting you in achieving your goals!
