Campus Needs and Guidance
Throughout the school year, the school counselors will visit classrooms for guidance lessons. We will employ a variety of counseling strategies to meet the diverse needs of our student population. Guidance lessons are based on both the beginning-of-the-year staff/parent/student needs assessment surveys as well as the Campus Improvement Plan.
A monthly calendar will be developed to address campus needs.
The areas of guidance to include:
- Self-confidence Development
- Motivation to Achieve
- Decision-Making, Goal-Setting, Planning, and Problem-Solving Skills
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
- Communication Skills
- Cross-cultural Effectiveness
- Responsible Behavior
Lessons are tailored to specific grade level needs to insure appropriateness. Throughout the year, students are provided with information on drug & alcohol awareness, dangers of social media, bullying, body image concerns, managing and coping with their emotions, communicating effectively and making good academic, social, emotional & personal choices.
