Primary Counselors

Hello Primary Family!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!! We are excited to welcome all of you back and to welcome our new counselor Mr. Terry Maness.

As we return to a fully in-person school year, we will not have a counseling Google Classroom. Instead we will be resuming our Model Guidance lessons, where we push into the classroom once a month with a fun lesson emphasizing our character word and building on it with a topic based in social emotional learning, building academic skills, or exploring career development.

Throughout the school year we will also have opportunities for students to join small counseling groups, as referred by their teacher or parents/guardians.

We are also able to connect our students and families with counseling or other outside resources as needed.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. We are so excited for another fun-filled year here at Hillsboro Primary!!

See you soon!

Mrs. Clute (Maddox) & Mr. Maness
