A Word From the Student Counselor

Topics Covered in Counseling

What to Expect

  • The school counselor will teach guidance lessons on feelings, friendship, bullying and types of bullying.

    Then we will have guidance lessons that include social skills: being a friend, sharing, accepting differences, positive communication and interaction.

    Along with that, she will be teaching coping skills to deal with their emotions in a healthy and positive way.

     

    Finally, there will be times where you can visit the counselor for individual/group sessions. Those are scheduled at an at-needs basis, and regularly.
