Tharptown Elementary School Counseling Program
I am here to assist students with career, academic, and social/emotional success. The students think of me as their adult friend in the building.
- Classroom Counseling: I teach lessons in the students’classroom throughout the year.
- Individual Counseling: I help students understand themselves and others.
- Small Groups: I offer small groups to students who need help with the same topic, such as family changes, social skills, self-control, grief, and anger management.
How can my child see a counselor? Parents, teachers, and students may request counselor services.
Parents may email or phone the counselor.
Students may let their teachers know when they need to see the counselor. Administrators and teachers also make referrals.
Other school counseling activities include organizing events such as Red Ribbon Week, Ambassadors, “Character Counts!” and State-wide Testing.
