School Counselors are here to assist students with career, academic, and social/emotional success.

Classroom Counseling:  

School Counselors teach lessons in the students’ classroom throughout the year.  The lessons focus on topics such as feelings, bullying, friendships, respect of self and others, career exploration, self-esteem, listening skills, coping skills, diversity, motivation, good character traits, problem-solving skills, and conflict-resolution skills.

Individual Counseling:

School Counselors help students understand themselves and others.

Small Groups:

School Counselors offer small groups to students who need help with the same topic, such as family changes, social skills, self-control, study skills, and anger management.

How can my child see a counselor?

Parents, teachers, and students may request counselor services. Parents may email or phone the counselor. Students may let their teachers know when they need to see the counselor.  Administrators and teachers also make referrals.

Other school counseling activities include organizing events such as Red Ribbon Week, Awards Day, Career Day, and State-wide Testing, etc.
