Counseling - Grades K-8

The School Counseling Program in grades K-8 is developmental and wellness oriented. Counselors are trained professionals, knowledgeable and competent to assist students in the areas of:

• Personal and social development

• Academic advisement

• Career awareness

• Crisis intervention

• Bullying/Harassment

• Impact of substance use/abuse

Preventive and pro-active, services are available to students via classroom lessons, small group, and when appropriate, on a short-term, individual basis. As part of the school district's support system, counselors collaborate and consult with parents, teachers and if necessary, district and community services to ensure the well-being of the individual student.

Counselors serve as a resource for the student population, their families, and school faculty and staff. Counselors are available at all schools, and can be reached at the following locations:
