 PBS popcorn party after earning 10 PBS charms for good behavior

Snow cone party after earning

20 charms for good behavior


Mrs. Gant and Mr. Pickle

Mrs. Gant was introduced to our new kindergarten students by her puppet friend, Mr. Pickle. While the kids were entertained by Mr. Pickle, they learned that Mrs. Gant, our school counselor, is someone they can talk to if they have problems. Mrs. Gant sees children for whole group classroom lessons, small group counseling and individual counseling. She also helps with our PBS, positive behavior support, program, and assists with our behavioral RTI or response to intervention. Call Mrs. Gant if you feel your child would benefit from counseling for behavioral or emotional support. 


 Please contact the school if you would like to volunteer or donate items for our reward events!!
