At the elementary level, school counselors work with students in the classroom, in small groups and individually. Additionally, the school counselor works with families and to provide resources and support.   

    Classroom guidance lessons are offered once every 10 days for grades K-6.  The current curriculum, RethinkEd is utilized, as well as hands-on, creative activities that support the standards set by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Topics encourage the development of each student’s personal/social, academic and career skills and abilities. Lessons include such topics as: Study habits and test taking strategies, goal setting, character traits, career development and healthy decision-making, handling stress and other emotions, dealing with peer pressure and getting along with others.

    Small groups are assembled based on the needs expressed to the counselor by teachers, parents and students. Examples of small group session topics: anxiety, divorce, friendship, anger management, study skills and family changes.

    Parents, teachers and even students themselves can request a one-on-one time with the counselor. Examples of reasons for a one-on-one with a  student: to create a plan for academic success, problem solve, help with friends, identify strengths/explore interests, transitions, work on behavior concerns, learn to cope with emotions, deal with life and family changes.
