Our school counselors work closely with teachers, parents and administrators to advocate for students and ensure that their issues are understood and their needs are met. Through regular communication and collaboration, a network of support is created for students. From the classroom, small group, to individual counseling lessons, students are supported to develop effective interpersonal and social-emotional skills. Our counselors support students and their families as they enter and exit the school to address the challenges typical of transition, as well as organizing transitional programs as students progress from elementary to middle school. Finally, our counselors are running extensive parent workshops to nurture a strong school-parent partnership promoting a positive and caring community.
