The goal of the Elementary/ Middle School Counseling Program is to assist our students in their emotional, social and academic growth.

Due to the challenges that children face in an ever-changing society, our students are expected to cope with a myriad of issues. In addition to the societal demands, they may experience personal and academic failure, feelings of worthlessness and changes within the family. Mr. Joe Parish, Ms Angela Ham and Ms. Rehab Mostafa, our counselors for grade 4 through grade 8, work closely with families in an effort to encourage our students to reach their maximum potential and strive to be their "personal best." Their roles are to supply the following :

 

 

individual counseling (social and emotional, and academic)

 

 

topic centered group counseling

 

 

consultation

 

 

referrals

 

 

parent support and advising

 

 

classroom and school presentations

 

 

encourage learning to live in a global society

 

 

empower children to succeed in all areas

 

 

Guidance and Counseling Curriculum

A major component of the Middle School Counseling Program is the Guidance Curriculum. To prepare and empower our students to fully function in a global society, we have identified and addressed ten areas of competency that will assist them to achieve academic and personal success.

The targeted areas of competency are addressed in classroom presentations and school wide experiences, designed to assist students in achieving academic and personal success. Over a ten month timeframe that begins in September and ends in June, they will explore and practice a new area of competency each month as follows :

September   Responsibility

October Citizenship

November Respect

December Honesty

January Courage

February Scholarship

March Caring

April Cooperation

May Inclusion

June Integrity

In short, our job is to act as student advocates, helping students learn to look after themselves and do their best in any given situation. If our students are ‘going off the tracks’ academically or socially and emotionally, we will help them to make sense of the situation and aim to redirect them in a positive direction.

If you have concerns about the welfare of your child and would like to speak to a counselor, please do not hesitate to call on extension 1112.
