Every year children will face new challenges in their lives at home and school. Utilizing the school counselor can help children transition through stages of development to ensure they are making smart choices every day.
As the school counselor, I visit the classrooms to discuss: bullying prevention, building healthy friendships, confronting cliques, and developing study skills. Counseling encompasses a wide variety of services. At St. Agnes, counseling services include but are not limited to: individual student academic program planning, counseling students who are tardy/absent or have disciplinary problems, assisting the school principal with identifying and resolving student issues, needs, and problems, and working with students to provide small and large group counseling services.
