COUNSELORS' CORNER




Welcome back to the Counselor’s Corner at Cape Fear Academy! As you know, all CFA Middle Schoolers receive social/emotional lessons twice a month that focus on personal wellness and discovering each student’s individual potential. Here’s what’s happening in November and December!

6th grade: Healthy Relationships and Mindfulness Basics

7th grade: Healthy Relationships and Mindfulness Basics

Family homework: As we gear up for a busy holiday season take a minute with your 6th and or 7th grader to pay attention. Point out a small detail on your drive to school or spend a few seconds listening deeply before your next family meal. Share and discuss with each other.

8th grade: Mindfulness practice, Core Values & Goal Setting, Emotion Regulation

This month 8th graders spent time dreaming about the next phase of life...HIGH SCHOOL! They explored their curiosities, brainstormed career fields, and learned how to connect their interests with real life opportunities. Take a look at this core values exercise that we used to get them started. Each student determined their core values and then wrote a personal mission statement.


Family homework: Find time over winter break to discuss goal setting with your 8th grader. I have shared some helpful tips below (full article linked here). I will specifically point out tip 1, 4, and 7 as crucially important for this task. It’s a very exciting time in their life and we look forward to fostering their individual growth.
