Aloha!  Welcome to Maunawili Elementary's School Counselor Corner.  On this site, you will find up to date information regarding the counseling department, services provided, and other announcements.  Please feel free to contact us if there are any questions or suggestions.  We are always looking to improve our practice and helping our students and staying in touch with our community.

A quick message from the counselors:

Welcome back from spring break!  We hope you all had a restful week, recharged, and ready to tackle the 4th quarter.

At the beginning of the 3rd quarter, we have started to switch our guidance program from the Second Step Program to Habits of Mind.  The main reason for the switch is the ability to practice the Habits of Mind in and out of school.  

The first 5 habits we are incorporating into our guidance program are persisting, managing impulsivity, thinking flexibly, finding humor, and striving for accuracy.

For more information on Habits of Mind, you may visit this website.

If your child's attendance is low, the counselors may contact you for a meeting.  If you want to get a hold of us quickly, you may use the contact information listed below.  If you are using the Remind text app, please look for @mrtomasu.

Here at Maunawili Elementary, we practice a set of virtues on campus.  The Maunawili POWER is posted in every class, and helps with our behavior expectations.
