“School counselors work to maximize student success, promoting access and equity for all students. As vital members of the school leadership team, school counselors create a school culture of success for all.” (ASCA)
S2S participate in multiple opportunities throughout the school year to strengthen and celebrate our amazing students. Service projects, leadership development, and strong work ethic are just a few of the topics discussed.

Students may approach any adult staff member in the school and request an opportunity to speak with the counselor. The counselor will make every effort to meet with students the same day they request this service. Parents can send an email, Schoology message or call the campus to request their child to visit the counselor.
Email, Schoology, or phone messages should include the following: Student first and last name, grade level, contact number and a brief explanation of the reason for contacting the counselor. Please allow up to 24-48 hours during the school week for the counselor to respond.
During the first few weeks of school, students will learn coping skills from many different staff members in different locations throughout the school. The school counselor will also visit each classroom to introduce the counseling program to students and how to get in touch with the counselor if the need arises. Throughout the school year, the counselor will continue to visit classrooms and teach skills necessary to work through anger, frustration, bullying, anxiety, kindness, acceptance, etc. If a student shows a need for a more focused approach to certain struggles, they will have the opportunity to meet with the counselor individually or within a group. Parents will be notified, and permission obtained if this is necessary.
Please refer to the Community Resources tab to find a list of agencies, service providers, and community resources available.
At the beginning of each month, a Counseling Newsletter will be posted on Schoology offering parents and students information regarding different resources available to students and family. The counselor’s contact information will always appear on the newsletter and can also be found on the school’s webpage.
