    Classroom Guidance 
     Students participate in classroom guidance with their homeroom throughout the school year. Guidance lessons focus on character education and the six pillars of character--responsibility, citizenship, fairness, caring, trustworthiness, and respect.  During classroom lessons, students learn personal responsibility, conflict resolution, empathy, bully proofing, how to make smart choices, social skills, and career exploration, among other things.
    Small Group Counseling
     Group counseling is available to all students and may be requested by students, parents, or teachers.  Groups typically meet four to six times and focus on topics such as friendship, anger management, self-esteem, separation and divorce, study skills, and social skills, among others. Permission slips are sent home prior to participation in any social/emotional small group.
    Individual Counseling
     Short term individual counseling is available to students at the request of parents, students, and teachers.  The goal of individual counseling in the school setting is to help students deal with difficulties dealing with academic achievement, personal concerns, or normal developmental tasks.  Long term counseling is not available.  Permissions slips will be sent home prior to any student participating in individual counseling.
