Guidance Counseling Update

Guidance Lessons

Introducing SDJA’s first ever Podcast, the Mindful Moment! This awesome communication tool will help our students teach their parents and our school community about the social emotional tools they are learning in class. Featuring Kindergarten students on our private podcast channel (only available to those with the following  link), our first episode highlights our emotional “weather reports,” with our youngest GMLS students helping us to identify and express our feelings. Check out us!
