Our elementary guidance and counseling program offers classroom guidance instruction, small group experiences and short-term individual counseling. Mrs. Gloege, our school counselor, is at school full time. Students can make an appointment to see a counselor and parents/guardians or teachers can recommend or request an appointment for a child.
The elementary guidance/counseling program has two major components: preventive guidance and individual counseling. Preventive guidance involves classroom instruction, which helps children in the areas of self-esteem, decision making, problem solving, bullying and social interaction. Individual counseling is designed to help parents, students and teachers with issues that may surface at some point during normal development. These include achievement, alcohol, behavior, death, divorce, fears / phobias, illness, siblings, etc.
