The school has two full time counselors who are on campus daily. Dr. Dodson is the counselor for Kindergarten to Grade 4 and Ms. McGowan is the counselor for Grade 5 to Grade 8. The counselors meet with individual students throughout the year for short term counseling. They are also available to consult with teachers and parents on best practices/supports for students.
Starting this year (2023-2024), parents will no longer be required to sign a disclosure for students to see the counselor as we are both fully employed by the school. If we see your child multiple times or if they are in an unsafe situation, we will reach out immediately.
Both counselors are responsible for teaching FOCUS classes each week. Topics discussed include social media safety, healthy coping skills, emotional regulation, mental health and more! The topics are flexible and can be adjusted depending on the needs of the students that year.
Feel free to reach out to the counselors for any questions or just to say hello! They would love to connect with you.
