Ms. Ninh

Dear Cheetah Parents and Families:

Welcome back to a new school year at Challenger – I’m very excited to be back as your School Counselor!  Our entire school staff will be working hard to ensure another year of learning, growth and fun.  My role is to teach, counsel and support all learners.  I’ll be doing this through Social Emotion Learning (SEL) lessons, small friendship groups, and individual meetings with students.

As always, I encourage you to stay connected with our teachers and support staff, so that we can help your students succeed.  This is one of the best ways to stay updated on your child's academic and social progress at school. We can work together to help your child's school experience feel positive, warm and caring!  

If you're seeking social emotional support, guidance or to chat about any questions or concerns you have – I am here for you. Together, we can explore solutions that can help your child's continuing growth at Challenger. Your child's social, emotional and mental well-being are a top priority for us. Below are some ways you and your child can connect with me.  Please reach out in whatever way works best for you.
