The goal of school counseling services is to assist with the social, emotional, and academic concerns so that the student can be learning their best and be prepared for their future. Our school counseling program includes monthly class lessons for students, small group counseling, individual counseling, consulting with parents and teachers, and coordinating school-wide programs such as our Character Education Program, Red Ribbon Week, and the Fourth Grade Work Crew.I teach lessons to each class at least once a month. Guidance lessons focus on developing personal, social and academic skills. School success skills such as listening, self control, good manners, friendship skills, handling emotions and conflict resolution are stressed in the primary grades. Upper elementary lessons cover these topics as well but also focus on appropriate ways of dealing with peers at an age when bullying and peer pressure become extremely important issues.
