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?

Seisen on Social Media

    We would like thank the Seisen Former Students for their ongoing support and understanding of our community effort to safeguard students during the regular school day by checking in at the Main Office, following our visitor etiquette, and proudly wearing their Former Student visitor tag.

    Visiting Seisen

    We love having former students come to visit but would ask as a courtesy that if possible you let us know a few days in advance through info@seisen.com so as we can arrange a tour for you. We love hearing the memories evoked as you take the tour and your impressions of any changes or improvements to the campus since your time as a student. Ms Rogers is always happy to chat and answer any questions you may have about the school, former students, and former teachers.

    If you are a more recent former student (from 2014 on) who may still have family, former teachers, and friends at Seisen we welcome you to drop by but to still follow the requested procedures and sign in at the Main Office to receive your Former Students badge.

    Former students and colleagues are always welcome to attend games and concerts.

    Welcome “Home”!
