WHAT DO SCHOOL COUNSELORS DO?

We work alongside teachers and families to help students develop socially and emotionally, and to help remove any barriers to learning!

We provide:

  • Classroom lessons teaching social skills, how to take care of strong feelings and how to regulate, friendship skills, self-control, growth mindset, etc.
  • Short-term individual counseling
  • Counseling groups throughout the year focusing on: friendship skills, social skills, family changes (banana splits), grief/loss, and self-control
  • Consultation with parents and teachers
  • Parent workshops
  • Community resource referrals (including long term therapy services)
  • Schoolwide initiatives

HOW DOES A STUDENT SEE A SCHOOL COUNSELOR?

  • Self-referral
  • Teacher, admin or other staff referral
  • Parent/guardian referral

*Confidentiality and your family’s privacy are important to us. What you or your child discuss with a counselor is private except in cases required by law (when abuse or neglect are suspected).

2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR

Each 9 weeks of the school year will have a focus on social emotional learning. For the 2023-2024 school year, we will focus on Respect, Self-Control, Kindness, and Taking Ownership.
