2nd Grade is ready for the Henrico Assessment Tests

Our second graders have prepared for the Henrico Assessment Tests (HATs) by learning our Motto: “We can FOCUS on the test!”  And by learning a catchy little song to help them be prepared for the test;

Snap your fingers, bend your knees, you can move them from side to side…repeat after me.

“Get a good night sleep” (get a good night sleep)

“Eat a good breakfast” (eat a good breakfast)

“Do your best” (do your best)

“Get to school on time” (get to school on time)

“Read directions carefully” (read directions carefully)

“Listen carefully” (listen carefully)

“Be quiet” (be quiet)  “Be quiet” (be quiet)

Selected 2nd graders from each 2nd grade class performed the song and FOCUS on the morning announcements this week!  They were great and all 2nd graders enjoyed the song!

Hello! I am the part-time school counselor at Echo Lake this year along with full-time counselor, Julie Williams. I am from East Tennesse. I have my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mars Hill University (near Asheville, NC) and my graduate degree in counseling education from VCU. I have been in Richmond since 1999 and I have seven years experience as a school counselor. I spent one year at Longan Elementary and six years at Johnson Elementary both in Henrico County. I have three children and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past five years. My children are all elementary age; 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten and now is the time to return to what I love doing by easing in as a part-time counselor. I look forward to getting to know staff, students, and Echo Lake families. This is a wonderful school and community! I am at Echo Lake part-time. I am here full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and half day on Fridays. I have started classroom guidance lessons in Kindergarten and Ist grade classes. We are learning how to be good students by listening carefully, always working hard and paying attention. I am the contact person for the International Baccalaureate Program at Moody Middle School for rising 5th graders. I am here for all students. I can see individual students from parent and teacher referral. I am happy to work with your child(ren).
