Counselor's Corner

Welcome!

Hello! I am so excited to join the Eagle Family this year as the Elementary Counselor at Robert F. Hunt Elementary! My name is Mrs. Venable. I have been in Education for 9 years, first as a Theatre/Debate teacher, and now, as a school counselor.

This year is going to be full of new experiences for students, parents, and staff. I know if we work together, we can make this year fun and fulfilling. This space can be utilized by parents and students whether students are in the traditional classroom setting or utilizing remote learning.

Third 6 Weeks Character Focus

PERSEVERANCE

During guidance lessons this six weeks, students have been learning about coping skills for handling stress and disappointment.

As we approach this holiday season, families are having to find a way to celebrate safely. This can mean that children are experiencing changes in what is normally a fun and joyous time. This six weeks will be focused on managing emotions, listening to bodily cues, and finding ways to make the most out of every day.

Some of the coping skills we will cover:

  • Deep Breathing

  • Journaling

  • Drawing

  • Physical Exercise

  • Positive Affirmations

  • Muscle Relaxation

During these uncertain times, please remember to extend kindness and grace to our students, but also to yourself.

We've got this!
