 Counseling services

 

-Our guidance counselor, Ms. Varner, facilitates small and whole group services to all of our students.  Classroom or small group activities includes: friendships, changing families, study skills, and self-concept to name a few.  Also, during these sessions, students practice life skills such as processing feelings, making good decisions, listening and communicating effectively.

 

The guidance services at our school are designed to involve ALL of our students. The counselor, working with the teacher, provides activities to integrate all aspects of the child’s development – personal, social and intellectual. 

 

A student may be referred for individual counseling by submitting a guidance referral form to the counselor.  Forms may be obtained from the Guidance office and the main office. 

 

Individual Counseling is one of many services provided by the school counselor.  Other activities for this year include Large Group Guidance (personal/social, academic, and career); Small Group Counseling; (anger, grief, self-esteem, study skills, etc.); Parent Involvement (conferences, workshops, providing resource information for free or low cost outside services, etc.); and identifying children for services (Homeless Program, Vision Assessment, Dental, Health Screenings, uniforms, tutoring, and other programs within the school system and community).
