Update from our counselors

Hello everyone,

We will be discussing influence this month in guidance. We would like to encourage our Frey community to participate in the discussion. Please post the following to your blog, let your students know about it, and please lead by example. Thanks for all you do for us!

 

#Influence

As motivated, engaged learners, Frey students understand they can influence their peers, family, community, and world with their words and actions. Significant change can begin with just one person’s positive example. We want our students and their families to join the conversation. We are encouraging our students, with the assistance of their parents, to post on social media regarding influence during the month of January.

  • What does influence mean to you?
  • Who has been a positive influence in your life?
  • What moments have been the most influential in your life?
  • How do you and your family positively influence others?
  • How do you and your family show gratitude for those who have influenced your life?

Simply post your story to Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram using the hashtag #freyflames and #influence. Be sure to include pictures! We will search the hashtags and use some of the stories for discussion with students. As an added incentive, if you include a hashtag with your house name you will receive a house point for your participation! (Please be aware there are limitations with our search capabilities, but we will catch all of the posts we can.)  

Example:

Students have posted inspirational messages through out Frey Elementary! #freyflames #reveur #influence

We look forward to hearing from you!
