School Counselor Connection

Mrs. Wright - Professional School Counselor

Austin Road Elementary School

Welcome Jaguar Family!

As the school counselor, I work with all students in order to provide academic, career, and social/emotional support. I offer a variety of services including classroom core curriculum lessons, small group counseling, short-term individual counseling, crisis intervention, as well as consultation for parents and teachers. I also sponsor school wide programs that promote leadership development, life skills, and character development. In an effort to foster student success, school counselors also consult and collaborate with parents, staff, administration, and various local community organizations.

We realize that success for all students begins with a strong home-school partnerships. We appreciate the continued support from our school community.

It is an absolute joy to work with your children! Thank you for all that you do to raise responsible, loving, and respectful kids. Join us as we prepare our Jaguars for readiness in college, career, and life!

Mission

The mission of Austin Road Elementary School's Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive counseling program aligned with the ASCA model designed to meet student academic, social/emotional, and college/career needs so they may become responsible and productive citizens. As a school counselor, I work with all students to facilitate overall success while incorporating technology in counseling activities in a 1-1 school environment. The department works in partnership with administration, teachers, parents and the community to develop children who are college, career, and life ready.

Vision

The Austin Road Elementary School Counseling Department vision is to mold students who persevere, strive for excellence, and refuse to be anything other than successful as they matriculate into post-secondary life.


School Counseling Referral Process and Information

  • Student Referral

  • Teacher Referral

  • Parent Referral

  • Administrative Referral

The elementary school years set the foundation for developing the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for children to become successful learners. Elementary school counseling programs provide education, intervention and prevention aimed to build each student. There are many reasons for children to seek out their school counselor. The times that we live in can be stressful and difficult. Many personal and school related problems can have a direct impact on a child’s ability to effectively learn. School counselors provide a safe and confidential environment for all students to help facilitate their academic and social success. Parental permission is not required to participate in individual or classroom core curriculum activities. School counselors help to build the whole child by directly focusing on social/emotional, college and career readiness, and academic development.
