Counselor's Corner: Transitions

Counselor's Corner: Transitions
Posted on 04/24/2018

As the summer approaches, we're beginning to think about transitioning to the next academic school year.

As with almost any period of uncertainty, this time of the school year can elicit feelings of stress, anxiety, frustration, or confusion for some students. For others, the view of summer on the horizon can make it difficult to focus on current classes, projects, and activities in school. The counseling team is here to support Putnam Ave. students and their families during this time.

There are also ways you may be able to support your student at home. These might include:

  • Acknowledging the difficulty of transition periods and remaining perseverant and focused, even when the end of the school year approaches. 


  • Reiterating the importance of putting best effort into schoolwork so that the end of the school year brings a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. 


  • Reminding students of the supports that are in place to assist them should they may feel concerned, overwhelmed, anxious, or worn out (e.g. school counselors, advisors, and teachers).
