A professional school counselor is available in each elementary building to serve all students in kindergarten through 5th grade. The counselor works with students individually, in small groups, and in the classroom once a week for 30 minutes at each grade level.
Counselors consult with teachers concerning the academic, social, and emotional needs of individual students in school.
The counselor may be of service to you as a parent/guardian in the following ways:
Conference with individual parents/guardians regarding their child’s social adjustments and emotional well being.
Connect parents/guardians to outside community resources and agencies.
The emphasis of the elementary counseling program is on the prevention of problems. All students are encouraged to make use of the services.
