Making a Difference

Post by Tom Rietkerk, SCS School Board President from the 2016 Presidential Report

The theme for our school year this year is “Make a Difference.” It comes from Philippians 4:13, where Paul is encouraging the church with the reminder that “we can do all things through Christ, who gives us strength.” I find this theme to be especially compelling for our family as my youngest child is preparing to graduate this year and we are knee deep in college applications, scholastic testing, and working through the emotions of this transition for parent and child.
 

Kelso's Choice: Learning to Problem Solve

Posted by: Andrea Grafmiller, SCS School Counselor

As the school counselor, I think it is important to interact with students in the classroom and teach them skills for coping with problems at school or at home. This year, I visited each of the elementary classrooms to teach the students about Kelso’s Choices. Kelso is a frog puppet that helps me teach the students about how to solve their own small problems. First, I help students understand the difference between small problems and big problems. A big problem is when a student feels scared or there is a risk of someone getting hurt.

Growing Emotionally and Socially

Posted by: Andrea Grafmiller, SCS School Counselor
 
As a school counselor, I believe it is important for Shoreline Christian to help students grow, not only academically, but also emotionally and socially. An essential part of my role as the school counselor is to support students’ social and emotional growth in order to help them build a foundation for their futures. I facilitate social and emotional learning through our counseling program from a holistic approach, where I reach students in the classrooms, small groups, and individually.
