1. Classroom Guidance is an opportunity for all students to learn important skills for success in school and life. These classes are incorporated into the C.A.M.P. rotation. Each year, we will cover different topics including:
Bullying - what it is and what to do about it
Drug Awareness (October is Drug Awareness month all across. the country).
2. Small Groups: (space is limited)
Lunch Bunch – Groups meet during lunchtime to minimize academic time lost. Some groups will follow a skills-based curriculum, while other groups will not have a set curriculum and are intended to build relationships with and help students with their particular concerns. General topics such as social skills, friendship, and how to handle anger are discussed.
Students can be considered for a group through a parent or teacher referral,
counselor recommendation, or by student's request. Parents will be contacted about the group and permission from parents is required.
Recess group - This group is spontaneous and based on student interest. Different students will be involved and there is no curriculum.
3. Individual counseling - is available on a limited basis for students experiencing crisis and for evaluation. Referrals to outside agencies will be made to parents as needed.
