Bethel and Penn-Bernville Elementary Counseling Department

    Hello Tulpehocken Families!
     The counseling department has been hard at work implementing Rachel's Challenge. Students were able to participate in a kick-off assembly in September. Since then, teachers have been using 180 connections in their classrooms. This is a 10-15 minute activitiy where everyone can get to know eachother. Students also particiated in a counseling lessons, where they learned about kindness. Students not get to create kindness chains. We cannot wait to see how big our buildings chains will become!
    The counselors will continue with monthly lessons throughout the school year. Our K-12 Career Counselor, Lydia Beck, will now be teaching career lessons from grade 3-6. We are excited to have come to out buildings!
