Counselors provide individual and group counseling services to meet the developmental, preventative, and remedial needs of students. As well, counselors are trained to provide responsive services and crisis intervention; however, counselors do not provide therapy or long term counseling. School counselors design and implement instruction aligned to the American School Counseling Association Student Standards as well as SEL (Social Emotional Learning) plans that support overall current needs.

SEL competencies include:

  • Understanding and managing emotions

  • Setting and achieving positive goals

  • Feeling and showing empathy for others

  • Establishing and maintaining positive relationships

  • Making responsible decisions

We look forward to working together with you this year to help ensure your child’s social-emotional growth and success in school.

Contact your counselor if you have questions or concerns about your child’s social/emotional wellbeing, adjustment, transition process, or any other concern that can assist in the prevention and in building a safe enjoyable environment to promote student success.
