Ahhh, thirteen and a half days until summer vacation. Not that I'm counting or anything!
This week I was composing e-mails to a couple of parents who'd asked me for some suggestions about how to work with their kids over the summer, and it occurred to me that a letter to all my kiddos' parents with some pointers might be a really useful thing to send home.
Now I must note here that I've been working as a school counselor since 1999, and this is the first time that this admittedly brilliant idea has ever occurred to me. I may be old, but I'm also slow on the uptake.
Anyway, I wrote the letter, which is general enough to send home with all the students on my caseload yet I hope still helpful. Here's the link to a PDF of the letter. As always, help yourself!
