Mrs. Reynolds and Mrs. MacKinnon teaching about using the Solution Wheel.
Welcome to our Nabnasset School Guidance website! As our new school year gets underway we have been busy introducing ourselves to all the new students at Nabnasset School. We have completed our “New Student Groups” and hope that all have discovered new friends as they embark on their new adventure at Nabnasset. Mrs. Reynolds and Mrs. MacKinnon have been visiting each pre-first, first and second grade class for their initial review lessons of the solution wheel, double D rule and how to handle teasing. In addition we would like to share with you an overview of our guidance services* at Nabnasset School and an online brochure of all elementary guidance services in Westford. Look for periodic updates to our new website as we create links to resources and helpful tips for parents on this page.
