October is Bully Prevention Month

October is Bully Prevention Month

Our motto this month is “Say BOO! to bullying” We are celebrating bully month with a bully free walk on October 17th.  The school will participate in walking the perimeter of the school to support no bullying.  We have Nutzy the Flying Squirrel walking with us, cheerleaders from Glen Allen High School cheering us on and football players from Glen Allen High School encouraging us and walking with us as well.  I am asking everyone to wear orange in support of our bully free walk.

Grades K-2 will walk from 8:00-9:00

Grades 3-5 will walk from 9:15-10:00

During the week of October 16-20, classrooms will also get a “ghost” cut out and write ways to stop bullying on the back of the ghost.  The ghosts will be hung on a paper chain in the front hallway for everyone to view!

About Jennifer D. Woody

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).
