    Dear Parents/Guardians:


    I would like to welcome you to a new school year at Cielo Vista Elementary.  As the school’s counselor, I am honored to be of assistance to you and your child.


    First and foremost, it is my responsibility to help your child get the best possible education.  A good education includes not only learning to read, write and do math, but learning good social skills.  This means, among other things, learning how to get along with other children, making good decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility, and being aware of strengths and weaknesses.  Many of these skills are taught at home.  It is my intent to supplement learning that takes place at home with small group and classroom guidance.


    We will continue to partner up with Chick-fil-A and implement the Core Essentials program.  Core Essentials is a character education program that provides a “value of the month” and in turn encourages classrooms, the entire school and every family to emphasize the same aspects of each value.  We will be sending more information on Core Essentials as the year progresses.  Please check out my schoology page for more info.


    I am also available to help students who are facing particular difficulties.  Such family disruptions as in illness, death, or divorce may affect children at school.  If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, please let me know.  If I am aware of any special problems your child might be facing, I can observe your child and help both of you with difficulties that might surface.


    One of my major functions is to be of help to parents.  If you have a particular concern about your child, I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss the matter.


    It is important to remember that school personnel and parents working together is a winning combination for children.  All children deserve to be winners.  Together, we can help your child realize this goal.


    If I can be of any help to you, please call 236-8375 between the hours of 8:00 – 4:30.  If I am not available, please leave a message.  I will return your call as soon as possible.


    Yours truly,


    Cristina Diaz,  M. Ed.

    School Counselor
