ACES students brighten the holidays for Quabbin Valley Healthcare residents

Pictured above are Rachel Schwab, and Linda Jaskoviak, Elementary Guidance Counselors for Athol Community Elementary School (ACES) and Royalston Community School (RCS), and Sherri Whitney, Activities Assistant, for Quabbin Valley Healthcare, on Jaskoviak’s last day at ACES, Dec.21, 2018, before retiring. Jaskoviak and Schwab delivered a whole basket full of holiday cards made by ACES students, to brighten the holidays for Quabbin Valley Healthcare nursing home residents. During the month of December, Schwab and Jaskoviak presented Classroom Guidance lessons to all classes at ACES for Kindergarten through 4th grade classes, and at RCS for Kindergarten through 6th grade classes, on the character trait of compassion. The elementary guidance counselors present weekly 45-minute Classroom Guidance lessons to all classes on the Specials rotation, which also includes: Media/Library, Physical Education, Art and Music, in addition to their student counseling work.  One focus of the Athol-Royalston Regional School District is that the elementary guidance counselors are providing social-emotional learning to all students on character traits, self-regulation, bullying prevention, social skills, school attendance, and career and college awareness. Linda Jaskoviak has loved working with students in the Athol-Royalston Regional School District for 16 years, with eleven of those years working as an elementary guidance counselor. Schwab will continue her elementary school counseling work with the new elementary guidance counselor, Jolene O’Brien, at both ACES and RCS.
