New (School) Year's Resolutions

January signifies a start of a new year, but August/September signifies a start of a new school year. Like others I make some (realistic) goals for the year and this year I'm going to do the same for my professional self too.  Here are a few of my New (School) Year's Resolutions:

-Do a better job of keeping track of the students that I've seen
-Do a better job of keeping track of parent communication
-Choose and order 3-4 new books for my 4th & 5th grade book clubs
-Lead a service project that benefits either military/veterans or a women's shelter or both
-Maintain a consistent schedule of class visits
-Maintain doing a monthly 5th grade parent newsletter
-Post more on my JYJ Counselor Facebook Page
-Tweet more
-Make time for me, saying "no" is ok at times

If all else fails, here's a laugh as you think of your resolutions:

What are some of your new school year resolutions?  I may have to add some of your suggestions to my list!

  1. I look forward to see what books you find for your 4th/5th book clubs...I did book club w/my 5th grade last year and we did 4-5 gradually got more difficult to find "good" (counseling-worthy) books for the club.
