What do school counselors do?
School counselors work with school staff, parents, and the community to help students have a more positive and successful school experience.  We work with ALL students to help develop the self-awareness, social skills, and coping strategies to effectively navigate through their elementary school years and beyond. This is accomplished through:
  • Individual counseling
  • Small group counseling
  • Classroom guidance lessons
  • School-wide events and activities focused on character building
  • Consultation and collaboration with staff, students, and families to develop academic interventions and supports
  • Crisis intervention and response
  • Providing information and resources to parents and families
