Counselor Update

Welcome to Truman! Each year at the beginning of the year I teach the whole school about a variety of topics including school wide expectations, how to handle bullying and bothering, how to solve a peer conflict, and the difference between tattling and telling. I also am available to help students learn social skills, peer interaction skills, and deal with emotional issues. Please feel free to call or stop by anytime!

The Bridge Conflict Resolution Tool

Each year we teach students the conflict resolution tool called, The Bridge. We have the colors painted on the playground. I also use this tool when I help students with conflicts. Feel free to use this at home--it is a simple yet effective approach to working out conflicts!
