Counselor Corner

Mrs. Clayton

 

My name is Bayley Clayton and I am the School Counselor at Troy Hills School. As

the school counselor, I work with teachers and parents to help children achieve

their fullest academic, social, and emotional potential.


The Troy Hills 5th grade students are currently completing their Peacemaker

Training lessons. Peacemakers volunteer their time to assist others with problem

solving and conflict resolution at recess. They help students in conflict come up with

a “win-win” solution!


Our character education theme for this year is “Hop, Hop, Hooray for Great

Character!” When a Troy Hills staff member sees a student demonstrating our

character trait of the month, the student will receive a paper frog with his or her

name written across it. The frogs are displayed on our bulletin board outside of the

main office for everyone to see! At the end of the month, we recognize these

students on the morning announcements by reading each of their names.


This year our students will show what it means to have great character! To kick off

our 2017-2018 school year, we will focus on showing Responsibility. October’s

character trait of the month will be Respect, with the Week of Respect celebrated

from Oct. 2nd through 6th.


Throughout the year, I visit classrooms to deliver lessons focused on character

education. These lessons and activities are designed to help children develop decision

making and problem solving skills, as well as a better understanding and acceptance

of themselves.


In addition to classroom lessons, I also:


• Facilitate small groups

• Meet with students individually

• Consult with parents, teachers, administrators, and other school personnel


Please contact me if you have any concerns or requests for assistance regarding

your child. I look forward to working with your child during the 2017-2018 school

year!
