Betz Elementary Counselor's Corner

Hello Students and Families,

A month ago, we were all in school doing our daily tasks, learning and spending time with our friends at recess. Now life has become very different for all of us. We are at home trying to connect with each other on-line or through other forms of technology. Your teachers are trying to help you continue to learn with on-line resources and your parents are trying to help you figure all this out.  It has not been easy, but we are all helping each other! stay positive, work hard, stay strong and remember that you are not alone. We are in this together. 

 

I am missing all of you!  I look forward to seeing you all again soon, but in the meantime please stay safe and healthy. 

 

Mrs. Bridie Riddick  hugs
