Mr. DiCiano's Counseling Page

Hello Students and Parents!

Welcome to my webpage!  I wish you a happy, healthy, educational, and safe school year.  It is a challenging time indeed, but we are all working together on one common goal... the betterment of the lives of our children of Bellmawr!

It is my goal to offer you quality individual counseling for a wide range of needs including, but not limited to managing stress and anxiety, coping skills, family change, grief, motivation, social skills, etc.  Please know that I am a phone call or an email away if you feel your child has a need for counseling services.  I will be servicing students in both remote and hybrid models. 

New this year is the Counseling Google Classroom.  Each child has received, or will soon receive access to my Google Classroom through their homeroom teachers.  The students will be visiting my virtual classroom each day in the SEL time block in their schedules.  I will strive to provide a daily stream of inspirational and thought-provoking activities, videos, and quotes that will help foster the skills necessary to become a well-adjust, successful, and mindful individual. 

I look forward to collaborating with you to help your child succeed! If you have questions, please do not hesitate contact me. 

Sincerely,

Dominick DiCiano

Play Chess!

There is a way that we can continue the Chess Club and give elementary students a chance to be part of it!  Take a look at www.chess.com, or click on the link to the left "Play Chess!"  You can sign up for the website to play live competition, join tournaments, and register for classes, or you can just hone your skills by playing as a guest against the computer.  You can learn as you play… the computer allows you to take back moves!  There are also online tutorials and puzzles for training your mind that are available to guests, so it isn’t necessary to join the site to enjoy the advantages of developing new strategies and becoming a better chess player! Obviously there is more available to those who register for the site, but it’ll make you a better chess player whether you do, or you don’t. 

This invitation is open to all Bellmawr students!  This website already has millions of members… come join the fun!
