Referrals to See the Counselor

All students have access to the counselor through whole group guidance. In addition to guidance lessons, some students visit with the counselor in small group counseling sessions. Individual students may self-refer to the counselor by filling out a Request to see the Counselor form in their grade level office or emailing their counselor. Parents may also refer by emailing or calling their students grade level counselor.
Big picture
In an effort to give all of the students at Timberwood Middle School personal opportunities to check-in with their counselor, counselors conduct individual meetings with students twice a year. Below are some benefits we see in meeting with each student.

1. Allows counselors to make meaningful, individual connections with each student.

2. The meetings are an easy, school-wide screening tool to help address student needs as they pertain to our counseling domains of: Academic/Career and Personal/Social.

3. Help to assist students in planning for life beyond high school, to become college and career ready.

4. Through this tool, the counselors also give the students the opportunity to express celebrations, concerns, and needs.
