What is happening in the counseling department right now?

Mrs. Kozuch provides individual counseling as well as small group counseling to address various topics on an as needed basis.  In addition, Mrs. Kozuch visits each of the various grade levels each year to provide classroom guidance lessons.  Each class each year receives age-appropriate instruction on bullying, personal body safety, as well as suicide prevention as required by Indiana law and standards.  Each grade level then also receives guidance lessons on college and career preparation and cyber-safety issues as well as the following topics:
