The purpose of school counseling is to provide a comprehensive program that encourages students to succeed in all areas of their lives. Our program at Park View is in accordance with the National Standards for School Counseling. Classroom presentations, small groups, and individual student sessions are used to teach and reinforce our school-wide behavior and learning goals, teach conflict resolution, understanding of diversity and tolerance, develop goal-setting plans, monitor student progress, ways to maintaining a caring school, etc.
This year the counselor will present special topics within individual classrooms like:
- Positive Behavior
- Conflict Resolution
- No Bullying
- Safe Schools
Academic achievement is supported by the counseling program through facilitating planning meetings with teachers and parents, assisting with assessments, offering tutoring before and after school, supporting educational standards in the classroom, and coordinating our academic excellence program. Counseling services are linked to other community agencies that help our children such as Operation School Bell, Department of Social Services, the Lions Club, etc. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school counselor.
