Parent ResourcesThe Guidance Department has a Resource Center for parents and students. Parents are able to choose and borrow from a variety of books and videos that cover many parenting and preadolescent issues and topics. In correspondence with our 5th and 6th grade Guidance Curriculum, we have listed several resources that are categorized by the units we cover. The Parent Resource Center is located in the Guidance Classroom. Please let Mrs. Antonio or Mrs. Auteri know if you are interested in borrowing one of these resources. In addition to books that can be found in our Resource Center, we have included links to websites that also provide helpful information.
