In the online world, social networking sites have become a predominant forum for kids to present themselves, seek approval, and describe their interests. One of the defining features of most social networking pages is the visual and audio clutter; these sites often look like over-decorated high school yearbooks or scrapbooks. Teens use these pages as a place to feature everything in their heads and hearts that they want people to know about. The central feature of these sites is the ability to connect with people and share information.

The link below has a collection of Parent’s Guides to different social media apps and sites yours children may be using.

Social Skills 2019

Today’s Social Skills Lesson

Today, your child was presented a social skills class coordinated by our counseling team.

We began with a review of our school wide theme of “GRRR”: Granite Grizzlies are Responsible, Respectful and Ready to learn! The social skills classes each month will provide the skills to “GRRR”!

  • We participated in a mindfulness breathing and relaxing exercise.
  • We also reviewed “If you don’t show it, they won’t know it!”
  • Today’s topics:
    • Perseverance/Grit: Not quitting, being “ok” with working hard.
    • Trying something new: How does that feel? How do we ask for help?
    • When things are easy, how do we respond to others struggling with the same task?

Please discuss with your child what he/she has learned from this lesson. It can provide a wonderful form of reinforcement of essential interpersonal skills
