Newsletters 2015-2016


WelcomTeenage Girl Working On Laptop Cliparte to another newsletter round-up! The last few years, I have shared the School Counselor Newsletters I put together for my teachers, staff, and parents/guardians. I hear from readers all the time that you appreciate the ideas to help you create your own. So, here’s some more!

Below are the newsletters from 2015-2016. Please click on the link to see each newsletter.


September, 2015 – Introduction newsletter (I began a new position at two schools, neither of which were very familiar with the role of a School Counselor)

October, 2015 – Building emotional awareness in children

November/December, 2015 – Communicating feelings (cotton/sandpaper lesson and E+R=O lesson) plus information about the school’s Civil Rights Team

January, 2016 – Self-esteem

March, 2016 – Kindness and how it can reduce bullying behaviors

April, 2016 – Mindset (difference between closed vs. open)

May, 2016 – Multiple Intelligences/Career Awareness

Information about my newsletters: I use Microsoft Word to make each newsletter. Using a lot of text boxes, I can manipulate the spacing and sizing of what I want to include. When I’m satisfied, I save it as a PDF document to share.

I am happy to share my newsletters to help you create your own. If you use most or all of one of my documents, please be respectful and give credit. Unfortunately, I can no longer provide editable versions of my newsletters, as the demand for this has become too overwhelming. Just be happy that I share for free. 😉

Thanks for your support!

  3. Hello and thank you for the great resources. I just found WordPress and decided to start a blog and follow you as well as another I found while researching for a paper. *You are cited 🙂 The boosts in ideas I needed were a blessing from you and I wanted to say thank you. I wish you all the best.
    God bless,

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this resource. I am citing you as I adapt your style to my own. Although I am just in the midst of doing my second parent newsletter this month, I find that having my photo and a little about me in the first one really seems to have opened the parents up to saying HI! when they come to the building and they are friendlier to me. I plan to create a survey to use during parent/teacher conference to see if there are other topics they’d like me to address. Thanks again!
