Emerson Elementary Communication - February 10, 2022
February 18 -21 / No School
It is National School Counselors Week, 2022. The American School Counseling Association (ASCA)’s theme is “Better Together “As School Counselors, we work with everyone!
This means I work with students, staff, parents, & outside community resources & of course, things work best when we work together & collaborate! I always hope and appreciate everyone working together to meet the needs of our students. I would like to THANK each & every one of you that has taken the time to understand our job & to work in collaboration to help each young person be successful!
Services provided through our comprehensive developmental school counseling program include:
- Classroom Lessons - PATH’s and Second Step Curriculum - (Academic, Social-Emotional, & Career)
- Individual Counseling - (NOTE: this is NOT therapy, it IS extra help with school related skills ex. coping skills, organization, focus, self-advocacy, etc. This is typically short term, weekly for 6-8 weeks.)
- Small Group Counseling - (topics based on needs ex. grief, divorce, study skills, etc.)
- Consultation and Collaboration with all Stakeholders
- Parent Meetings
- Crisis Management
- Referrals for Mental Health services if needed
I feel very fortunate to be able to work in such an amazing environment with extraordinary students and staff members. My goal is to help ensure that every student feels happy, safe, and ready to learn skills needed for success. Please contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have regarding the school counseling program. The school number is 360.563.7150 or you can email me at email@example.com.
