November is Respect Month

November is Respect Month

This month our classroom lessons are focused on respect.  We are celebrating with a “Raising Respect” Week November 27-December 1st.  Each day this week we will focus on a specific act of Respect:

Monday-smile and say good morning to every teacher you see.

Tuesday-Tell or write a note to your teacher on why you respect them

Wednesday-Pick up any trash you see on the floor of your classroom, hallways or cafeteria.  Thank our custodian and cafeteria staff and monitors

Thursday-Say “please or thank you” every time you speak to someone.

Friday-Be sure to finish your “Respect Card” and turn in to Mrs. Woody

Students can also fill out a Respect Card to complete during the week and be put in a raffle to win a prize,  along with a car or truck to decorate with ways to show respect to decorate our “Respect Road” that will be in the main hallway for display.

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).
