Mesnier counselor thank you

Dear Mesnier Families,

This week is Counselor Appreciation Week.  We would like to recognize and thank our counselors, Mrs. Heitkamp and Mrs. Sparrow.  

This week during counseling lessons, students will be following up the interrupting lesson from "My Mouth is a Volcano” book by discussing what is means to tell too much truth and practicing using our social filters.  

SEE IT HERE FIRST --> Affton friends, we need your help! With recent changes to Facebook, if you want to guarantee you'll continue to see our posts, be sure to click "See First" under "Following." We have some friendly photo guides to help.
