Services Provided

School Counseling Curriculum
The elementary school counseling program provides a comprehensive, research-based curriculum to all students to address the academic, career, and social/emotional needs at the child's developmental level. Classroom lessons are regularly scheduled and topics may include self-esteem, conflict resolution, study skills, emotion management, career awareness, tattling vs. reporting, friendship and social skills, responsibility, respect, bullying, empathy, cooperation, goal setting and decision-making, peer pressure, and many more.
Responsive Services
Responsive services are activities designed to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.
Individual Counseling
School counselors may work with a student in a safe, positive, and confidential setting to address issues that may impede a student's academic achievement. Topics are based on the needs of the student and may include understanding feelings, changing families/divorce, grief, stress, social skills, academics, bullying, problem-solving, and decision-making. 
Small-Group Counseling 
An opportunity for students sharing similar issues or concerns to work together in a small group environment consisting of about 4-6 peers. The group sessions usually last about 30 minutes and are held for approximately 6-8 weeks. Topics are based on the needs of the students and may include changing families/divorce, grief and loss, friendship and social skills, study skills, conflict resolution, emotion management, self-esteem, and stress-management. 
Academic and Career Planning 
School counselors support students in creating and cultivating their own unique and information-based visions for post secondary success, obtained through self-exploration, career exploration, and the development of academic and career management and planning skills. Every year we offer academic and career planning conferences with all fifth grade students and their parents and provide information for the transition to middle school.
Indirect Services
School counselors will often advocate on behalf of students which may involve making a referral for additional services or consulting and collaborating with parents, teachers, other educators and community organizations.
