Counselor's Corner - August/September 2020-21

A message from your counselors,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year! We are so excited to meet our new Falcons as well as seeing our returning Falcons! As your counselors, we are here to help and support your needs virtually and in-person. Let's make this school year the best yet; and like Dr. Woods said, "BACK.TOGETHER.BETTER"

Counseling Support

Guidance Curriculum - We provide lessons for students Pre-K - 5th grade, with the purpose of empowering our students with different life long social skills. Some examples of topics include: Friendship, Kindness, Bullying, Safety, and Goal Setting.

Responsive Services - We meet with students individually and in small groups to focus on specific needs. Some topics include: Self-Esteem, Coping Strategies, Bullying and Responsible Behaviors.

Individual Planning - We empower students by guiding them in planning their future by establishing goals; specifically academic goals and moving on to middle school.

System Support - We meet with teachers, parents, and other school professionals to make decisions to help students be successful.
