School Counseling Program Information
WHO IS THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR?
Hello! My name is Diana Arie, and I am your child's school counselor. As the school counselor, I work with ALL students to remove barriers to student learning and encourage success. I believe that every student deserves to feel safe and connected to our school, and I do my best to get to know the students to support that belief. I look forward to getting to know your child, or continuing to support your child, as they continue their education at Johnnycake Corners Elementary! Please feel free to contact me at any point if you, or your child, need additional support. Thank you for supporting your child!
The comprehensive school counseling program at Johnnycake Corners Elementary School is designed according to the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) National Model. This model encourages a comprehensive and developmental counseling program that addresses the social/ emotional, career, and academic needs of every student.
The school counselor visits every classroom at least once per month for classroom lessons to discuss a variety of topics including: emotions, coping skills, conflict resolution, friendship, teamwork, and more. These lessons address the academic, career, and social/ emotional domains, and are related to district curriculum maps. To see the district curriculum maps, click here.
Small groups are offered for additional support throughout the year, based on the students' needs. Topics may include: new students, friendship skills, organizational skills, self-esteem, and more.
School counselors provide short-term individual support for students, as needed.
Additional services include:
Consultation with parents and school staff
Coordination with outside agencies and therapists
Referrals for community services
