Counselor Corner

All the Latest News from the Scales Counseling Office!

Welcome Back!

This year we have had some changes in the counseling office! Suzanne Edwards has joined the staff as our part-time counselor. In her role, Suzanne will serve the K-2 students. Elaine Coyle will continue to serve students in grades 3-5, as well as being the 504 Coordinator and Building Testing Coordinator.

The year is off to a great start! Please see below for two programs we are getting started this fall.

Coffee with the Counselors

This year we are so excited to bring back our "Coffee with the Counselors" program. This is a time for parents to come together in an informal setting and, with the counselors, discuss topics related to raising children.

We would love your opinion! Attached is a short survey for you to tell us which topics you would most like to see presented at "Coffee with the Counselors". Please take a moment to click on the topics that catch your interest, or add a suggestion of your own!

Lunch Bunch Program

One of our favorite services that we offer to students is our Lunch Bunch program. The purpose of these groups is to allow students to come together with other students in the same grade, spend some time getting to know each other, and learn some skills to help them to be more successful in the school setting and beyond. Small groups are a great opportunity for students to discuss issues and get support from their peers.

If you would like to have your child participate in a lunch bunch group, please click the link below and fill out the form. Groups will be forming in late September and will run for 6-8 weeks. A permission form will be sent home for you to sign before the group begins.
