This week I had also planned to visit many classrooms and start to discuss diversity and acceptance. I believe this goes hand and hand with our social and emotional topic of the month, kindness. This book is a great way to discuss the differences of others. Just because they are different doesn’t mean we can’t be kind and accepting of them. This a great book that helps make us aware of how our differences makes this world such a fun place to be.
Virtual Snow Day
Good Morning! I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful snow. Since today is a virtual day I thought I would share a few links below.
Today in our Black History Moment we are discussing Muhammad Ali. Click on the link below to watch a video about his life.
This month during our Social & Emotional Learning we are discussing Kindness. Below is a link for a video to help guide the students to think about ways to strive to be a little kinder.
This week I also planned to start discussing "Diversity and Acceptance". We are all unique but then also the same in many ways. Enjoy listening to this book that shares how two boys are the same but so uniquely different. A fun activity is to discuss ways that you as a family are the same but yet different.
Please don't hesitate to reach out if I can assist you in anyway.
Happy New Year!
I am so excited to welcome all HSES students back to school and back to virtual learning. I can't wait to continue to embrace this new opportunity of multiple ways to work with your children. This year my theme is "Grace". Please give me grace as I am learning and working towards setting up and leading lessons via Schoology. Each month I will add lessons to my schoology, and as always I am here if there's anything I can help you with.

My name is Amber Smith Clay and I am your counselor at Hope Sullivan. I've worked at HSES since 2005 and have loved working with the families of Hope Sullivan. Your children bring such a joy to my day. They are such a joy to watch grow and change during their time at Hope Sullivan.
On a personal note my husband Jonathon and I were blessed with triplets in September of 2019. We've loved growing in our new rolls of parents and have loved spoiling our sweet crew. We also love working within our community and with the children of Desoto County. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your children's lives.
Please let me know if there is any way that I can help you to make this year successful.
