Counselors are available to meet with students on an individual basis for any social, emotional or academic concerns. Referrals are through staff, parent, peer or self. Referrals are made through emails, calls, or counselor mailbox.
We will be offering various support groups, based on student need, throughout the school year. Groups meet weekly or monthly. Students participate in groups through a parent or staff referral, or they may refer themselves. Written parent permission is required.
Counselors visit 6th grade classrooms year-round to present information on college and career readiness, age-appropriate social and emotional topics, as well as scheduling procedures and class selection for the following year.
We offer several parent presentations throughout the year, including: #SAFE: Join the conversation – Straight talk about adolescent stress, peer pressure, mental health, and other issues facing youth today.
