Coffee with the Counselor

Julie Deming, School Counselor

What is Coffee with the Counselor?

Each quarter, I will host a morning coffee for parents on a topic that is relevant to elementary school. This gives me the opportunity to meet with many parents at once to discuss how to help their children be successful. All parents are welcome to attend these meetings. One of the biggest benefits from having these meetings is that parents see that they are not alone in having questions about how to navigate through their child's elementary school years! The meeting dates and topics will be announced on the school webpage and via the Summersill Newsletter.


Meeting Outline

Each meeting will last about an hour. Typically, we will do a short presentation and distribute some handouts; then leave plenty of time for questions! And, of course, refreshments are provided. =]


What if I cannot attend the coffee, but want the information?

We understand that the life of a parent is very busy and that some circumstances prevent you for being able to make it to a morning meeting. I will post any presentation and the handouts on our school website afterwards. I will also try my best to post any questions that were addressed along with the coordinating answers. So check back there if you can't join us. I am happy to talk to parents over the phone about the topic, as well.


How topics and times are decided:
