Support Services

Does your student need help with:

  • Managing feelings?
  • Staying Organized?
  • Working out friendship issues?
  • Managing impulsive behavior?
  • Dealing with a family change?
  • Obtaining resources (food, clothing, school supplies etc…)?

 

The School Counseling program at B-C Grammar # 1 Elementary can help your child have a successful year through the following services and programs:

 

Classroom Guidance – I visit every classroom each month to explore the following character development topics:


  • Responsibility
  • Perseverance
  • Honesty
  • Respect
  • Bullying prevention
  • Friendship
  • Resilience
  • Personal safety
  • Career Awareness

 

Small Group Counseling – Through parent, teacher, or student self referral, small group sessions are offered to students dealing with similar concerns in a effort to build strategies and learn from each other.  Topics may include:


  • Friendships
  • Anger management
  • Family changes
  • Grief/loss
  • Study/Organizational Skills
  • Self Esteem

 Brief Individual Counseling - Counseling sessions are offered to students who have emotional or social challenges that are affecting their academic performance.  The goal of individual sessions are to help the student cope with immediate needs so that they can continue to be successful in the classroom.  If a student’s needs are beyond the scope of what can be provided by the school counseling program, outside referrals will be suggested. 

 

Parental consultations – Conferencing and communicating between school and home is vital to student success.  Please contact me to discuss strategies for working successfully with your student on a variety of developmental, academic, and personal needs.   Also look for tips and strategies in our monthly newsletter.  I encourage a partnership with all families and am happy to discuss any concerns or needs you may have in person, by phone, or email.
