Dear Franklin Families:
I’ve created a mailbox for you to reach me by clicking on the following link: Mrs. Tiedt's Parent Referral Mailbox. You may also reach me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 920-424-0078 ext 1528.
During this time, I am sharing Social Emotional Learning with the students and families on my Facebook page. Click here to join Mrs. Tiedt's School Counselor Connection on Facebook. I also have a Google classroom to reach out to third through fifth grade students and I have a topic in each of the Kindergarten through second grade Google Classrooms. Please remind your student to check out my classroom for mindfulness activities, read-a-louds and social emotional lessons each week. Please ask your student about the website that I’ve created for them as well. Click here to check out Mrs. Tiedt's Counselor Connection.
This is a stressful time for everyone. Remember we are here for you. Although we can’t all be together right now, we are here for you. If you need anything, check out this Oshkosh Area Community Resources link. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We are all in this together. We’ll get through this.
Check below for what’s happening this month!
Thinking of you all!
What's Happening in Guidance?
In April we will be focusing on Self-Regulation.
We will focus on our brain and how the parts of our brain work together to help us keep our cool and keep us from “Flipping our Lids”.
If you have any questions or would like more information regarding either one of these programs, feel free to reach out to the school.
