Alamo Heights Cheer Squad Champions

Two San Antonio Cheer Squads Named State Champions

Counseling Services Continue During School Closures

We are currently so bombarded with information about coronavirus and COVID-19 that it can be confusing and sometimes overwhelming. There are so many contradicting opinions that seem to evolve daily, and it’s difficult to keep up. For some young children, this uncertainty can be scary or cause anxiety. For older kids, they may be stressed because of questions about how to navigate distance learning and manage their time.

Our San Antonio- area public school counselors are available to help alleviate some of that stress and uncertainty. Many schools have set up reference pages on their websites tailored to their individual communities. Several school counselors offer guidance online via video conferencing with Zoom or Google Hangouts.  Parents and students are encouraged to explore and utilize the many free resources and support that is available through their local school districts.

Fort Sam Houston ISD counselor Jessica Garza remotely counsels a new student to Robert G. Cole Middle/High School.

Penny Project Alamo Heights Holocaust memorial

Alamo Heights ISD Students Make Anti-Bullying Statement with Penny Project

Teacher Lisa Barry of Woodridge Elementary School spearheaded a classroom project to collect 6 million pennies to represent the number of lives lost during the Holocaust. Her students became involved in this project which then turned into a fundraiser for schools across Alamo Heights ISD. So far, they have collected over 100,000 pennies, and they are determined to keep it up! Money from the project is donated to local charities and the San Antonio Holocaust Memorial. Ms. Barry has a goal to teach this generation of students to think about how each of them can make a difference. The project reminds the students of the importance of tolerance and the unfortunate outcome of bullying on a large scale. These Alamo Heights kids are becoming young humanitarians one penny at a time.
