School Counseling Services

A School Counselor's primary responsibility is to promote all students' academic, career, and social/emotional development by developing a Comprehensive School Counseling Program. School Counseling Programs help learners develop learning strategies, self-management, and social skills for lifelong success. Small group counseling: The elementary school counselors will run small groups with 6 to 10 students on various topics as an intervention for certain students. Small groups allow students to relate, learn and develop positive relationships with other students who may be struggling with the same issues. Past small group topics included self-regulation, coping skills, self-esteem, and grief. Individual counseling: Students and caretakers can reach out to their counselor anytime with personal, social, or career questions! We can provide a variety of tools to help students achieve their goals. We can provide brief short-term counseling. Virtual Recess: This time is for learners to socialize with each other in a controlled and monitored setting. There will be time for learners to chat with each other and participate in games or activities facilitated by the School Counselor. It is a time for learners to have a little fun, socialize, and practice social skills.

Then: In the past, we used the term "Guidance Counselor" because counselors "guided" students towards their college and career by providing letters of recommendation, sending out transcripts, etc. Now: School counselors are highly trained mental health professionals providing a comprehensive preventative program that supports ALL students' academic, personal-social, and career needs.
