From our School Counselor, Mrs. Berkeley:
Hi Cardinals! I miss you all, and I think about you every day. I hope you all are doing well, and enjoying the time at home with your families. These are strange times. It is okay if you are feeling scared or worried, sad, or even angry about the changes in your life, and how it affects you and your family. If you want to talk about it, I am here. We can arrange a meeting online to chat alone if you like, or you can sign up to have lunch with me and a group for fun or to check in. I can't wait to see you online!
