Respect Week was a success!

Respect Week was a success!

Springfield Park celebrated our Respect Month with “Raising Respect”  week during the week of Nov. 27-Dec.1st.  Students had respect cards to complete during the week with instructions like “pick up trash”, “turn the water off while brushing teeth”, “write on both sides of the paper”, and “send a note to someone who is sick or elderly”.  They also got to decorate a car or truck and write ways to show respect on it to be displayed on our Respect Road that went up the main hallway for students and staff to see.  Daily challenges were delivered on the morning announcements like “Don’t talk while the teacher is talking” and winners from the report cards were announced on Dec. 4th, 5th & 6th.

Below are pictures from our Respect Road.  It was a fun week!

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).
