How Can I Help You?
Information about the School Counseling Program for Faculty
How do I make a referral for counseling?
Students can self refer for counseling using the school counselor mailbox in the Media Center. Students have a form to use for self referrals, but I also accept any other form of note. I just tell students to remember to put their name on any notes they are sending to me! I will place a few student self referral notes in your box this week, please choose a designated spot in your classroom for these notes and show students where they are. Last year many teachers chose to put the notes on the back of their door with a magnet!
Parents can contact me by email or phone message with concerns. Please feel free to give out my email to parents or they can leave me a phone message by calling the main office. email@example.com
What is this Lanyard or stuffed animal in my mailbox?
On the lanyard or in the stuffed animals pouch, you will find specific information about which student I need to see, what time, and where they need to go. If there is a conflict, please email me that morning if you are able. I certainly do not want to take students out of important instruction and will avoid doing so in non emergency situations. Group counseling will be conducted during lunch time, and students should report with their lunch box or plate from the cafeteria.
Character Counts Certificates for students
Faculty and staff members who do not have a homeroom class are welcome to fill out the google form as well to honor a student of your choice with good character!
Character Education Class topics for August and September
During August and September, all students will be introduced to the role of the school counselor and learn how to use the student self referral system. In addition to this, students are learning about mindfulness and how we can use mindfulness activities like we practice in class to train our brains to think about one thing at a time so that we can focus on the present (aka listen and focus during class!). Student will also be introduced to coping skills at the end of September!
