It is hard to believe that the end of the year is just around the corner!  We still have a lot to learn and to do.  Please encourage your children to continue to give their best everyday.  We started the year strong and we need to finish even stronger!  Thank you for sharing your children with us this year!

The School Board Division Safety Advisory Committee is again conducting its annual poster contest on anti-bullying.  The purpose of the contest is to highlight awareness and issues related to bullying. Posters should be turned in to Mrs. Thompson or Mrs. Rivenbark no later than April 11.  Three school winners will be selected.

Counselor Connection February

February was a busy month as fifth graders registered for 6th grade electives and completed honors program applications.  National School Counselors Week was observed.  I wanted to say “thank you” to my Round Hill family for making the week so special for me!  Round Hill is the greatest!

Counselor Connection January

 To kick off 2019, classroom guidance continues to focus on character and being the best that we can be.  We discussed resolutions and goals. In the upper grades, we will focus on one word that will help us be successful this year.  What promises will you make to make yourself better this year?  Fifth graders will begin applying for classes and the honors program for middle school.  School Counselor’s week is February 4-8.

Counselor Connection December

 Thanks to all of you who contributed to our United Way Campaign! As we enter this holiday season, our guidance lessons will focus on a gift that keeps giving – kindness.  One small kind act can lead to many more.  We can make a difference when we all work together!

Counselor Connection October

 October has been a busy month!  We recognized that it was National Bully Prevention Month by both defining “bullying” and talking about ways to handle it.  We also celebrated Red Ribbon Week in which we discussed the importance of making healthy choices for our lives.  Our United Way Campaign kicked off October 29.  As we look to November, we will be working on projects to honor our veterans.

Counselor Connection September

This year has gotten off to a great start!  Classroom guidance lessons have focused on the RCPS theme for the 2018-19 school year – “Dream Big.”  We have discussed the importance of setting goals and following our dreams.  Stop by and visit our “Dream Big” display.  It will be exciting to see where our dreams carry us!
