The school counselor is a trained professional who works as part of your child's team. School counselors work in partnership with students, teachers, parents, and the community to help your child to have a successful and positive school experience. School counselors understand that each child is different. Some students just need someone to listen to their concerns, whereas others may need help in developing problem solving and decision-making skills. Whatever the concern, the school counselor is there to listen to your child and to help your child to feel safe and comfortable within the elementary school.
Sometimes parents need support and guidance as well. School counselors are also trained to work with parents and can be seen as a great resource to the parents and school staff. The mission of the Counseling Office is to promote student success by providing academic, career, personal, and social counseling.
