Hello!I'm Ms. Laura Grant,School Counselor at Spring Ridge Elementary School.Welcome to the 2017- 2018 School year!Follow me on Twitter!@WSDSRCounselorA few words about the school year . . .This year's theme is Spring Ridge is Down on the Farm E-I-E-I-O (Education-Is-Everything-In-Our-School)!The Comfortable Cafeteria program begins! Mrs. Haley Fox, Occupational Therapist, and I are spearheading this to promote a more enjoyable mealtime experience for all. We - along with all staff - are promoting manners, social skills, follow directions and general respect and responsibility. Go to www.everymomentcounts.org for more information.Our Watch D.O.G. Program enters its fifth year! Watch D.O.G. S. (Dads of Great Students) is a nationally recognized program where men volunteer to spend a day or more at school, working with children one-on-one and in small groups, lending a hand in all specials classes, and enjoying lunches and recesses with the children. The men are usually fathers of students, though we've hosted and welcome grandfathers and uncles, too. Both students and teachers benefit from the presence of these dedicated dads - and the fathers rave about what they themselves learn and how much fun they had here. To learn more, contact me or visit the Watch D.O.G.S. links on this site.Fifth grade teacher Mrs. Kate Schuler are facilitating The Spring Ridge School Leadership Team (SRSLT) for the third consecutive year! Fifth grade students are chosen to participate based on their academic effort and overall behavior. They consistently display Wilson's Seven Character Traits - Caring, Courage, Honesty, Perseverance, Resourcefulness, Respect and Responsibility. These student leaders add to our caring school community by assisting at assemblies, celebrations and fundraising. They decorate the school and it's sidewalks, made stress balls for students, help teachers with displays and more. We are sure that this year's SRSLT members will serve our school proudly and set a fine example for other students to follow!Guidance Helpers offers a win-win-win for teachers, fourth graders and younger students! Every year, I supervise fourth grade volunteers who help in the younger classrooms. Under additional supervision from classroom teachers, these older students help with reading, math, packing and unpacking backpacks, and anything else they are asked to do! As you can imagine, our younger students receive so much more than academic support. They connect with student role models who show them what it means to be responsible and caring!.Ms. Laura GrantI can be reached by calling
