Why access the School Counselor:
School Counselors are valuable liaisons between home and school. Staying in contact with them regarding any home or school related issues allows them to work in partnership to address all the needs of each child. Information such as family changes, illness, change of address or phone numbers should be shared with the school counselor.
What we do:
Developmental Guidance Lessons - School counselors teach students in their classrooms about many topics including: study skills, problem solving, decision making, career choices, alcohol and drug abuse, bullying, harassment and much more!
Small Groups - School counselors work with groups of students with similar concerns to explore their feelings together. Students may need to talk about issues such as divorce, struggles in school, loss, anger, body image etc.
Individual Counseling - School counselors meet with students privately and confidentially to discuss issues on a one-to-one basis.
Consultation - School counselors work in a collaborative partnership with parents, teachers, administrators, school support staff, and community members in order to plan and implement strategies to help students to be successful in school.
Coordination - School counselors assist parents in obtaining needed services for their children through a referral and follow-up process. Counselors serve as a liaison between the school and community agencies to collaborate their efforts for the benefit of the students.
How to find us:
Students: Students can meet with their school counselor before and after school, lunch, during breaks in the day, and with permission from their teacher. If your counselor is not available, please leave a note and return to class.
Parents: Please call or email your child’s counselor directly to discuss any concerns or to set up a meeting.
