Guidance counselor, Mrs. Jan Turner, conducts classroom guidance lessons, which are an integral part of the curriculum at Bancroft Elementary School. First graders learn about the importance of rules in their new school and second graders learn the differences between tattling and reporting.
The newly state-mandated career lessons are underway and will finish by year’s end. The topics of this curriculum include entrepreneurship as well as career awareness, preparation, acquisition, and advancement. The school has welcomed two guest speakers – Mrs. Noelia Scharon, Co-Owner/Founder of La Michoacana Ice Cream visited the third grade and Kennett High School’s Assistant Principal Mr. Ray Fernandez visited the fourth grade. Fifth grade students participated in mock job interviews. Later in the school year, Crime Victims of Chester County will do presentations on bullying and internet safety. These lessons are instructional and informative in nature and reach all students.
