Positive Discipline Tool of the Month: Mistakes

Children are incredibly aware of the world around them, and the messages they receive about mistakes- intentional or unintentional- are internalized. If we want our children to be gritty, resilient, risk-takers, we need to be teaching that mistakes are wonderful opportunities to learn. If we want our children to succeed, we need to teach them how to fail.  

Positive Discipline Tool of the Month: Family Meetings

A great way to open up or strengthen the lines of communication within your family is by having weekly family meetings.  Family meetings are an effective tool because all members get to have a voice and the freedom to express themselves.  They also teach important life skills such as respectful communication, problem solving, and responsibility. 

On Wednesday, October 17th, I will be holding my first parent workshop of the year from 7pm-8:30pm in the Drama room. In addition to safeguarding, we will also explore the Positive Discipline approach to family meetings. I hope to see many of you there! 

Welcome Back!

As a school counselor, I view listening as the most essential part of my job. When we feel hurt, angry, confused, or even lost, we’re usually not looking for advice but instead someone to listen and validate our feelings.  This is what I hope to offer every person who comes to my office.

The beginning of a new school year can be both exciting and overwhelming. I want to remind the middle school and high school students that I am here to support and listen to them.

 

Gratitude

Most of us were raised to be polite and respectful, and saying “thank you” is an essential piece of good manners.  But for how many of us has saying “thank you” become a reflex, something we mindlessly utter to the shop clerk or bus driver?  How many of us actually spend any amount of time really reflecting on our gratitude?

Agents of Positive Change

At Seisen we believe in our students. We have faith that each student can, with encouragement and guidance, be and do whatever it is that they want. They can all become global citizens and leaders, motivated and equipped to live in a fast-changing world and committed to making a difference just as our founder, St. Raphaela, did in her day.

By helping Seisen students become communicators, risk takers, collaborators, reflective inquirers, knowledgeable, compassionate, principled, global minded and religious men and women, our talented and committed faculty is mentoring agents of positive change in the world.

Let one of our Seisen Student Ambassadors in Middle or High School show your child what Seisen has to offer by shadowing for a day.

Parents and prospective students are welcome and encouraged to visit the school. For school tours or to arrange for Student Shadowing please contact:
