Girls Night Out!

This week I hosted my first annual Girls Night Out for 3-7th grade girls and special women in their lives.  They were invited for a pizza dinner, to watch an An American Girl:Chrissa Stands Strong, and to have a brief discussion about relational bullying.  


American Girl:Chrissa Stands Strong is an adorable movie that shows the struggles Chrissa had making friends when she moves to a new school.  At the end of the movie I brought daughters back with their special guest for a brief discussion. I closed the night by drawing 3 raffle prize winners!

Rainbows

Once a week I facilitate a grief group using The Rainbows curriculum.  Rainbows is a 12 week program for students grade k-12.  The curriculum is written for students who have either experienced death or  divorce.   The material is very sensitive to students needs, and helps members to realize they are not alone with their feelings.

What resources do you use to talk to students who are experiencing death or divorce? Share them here, or on the The School Counselor's Chronicle facebook page!
