School Counseling Program Information

  • Cheshire Elementary’s School's counseling program facilitates education, prevention, and intervention services in order to promote success and remove non-academic barriers to learning. The program teaches the knowledge, attitudes, and skills students need to acquire for academic, social/emotional, and career development. This serves as a foundation for maximum student learning and future success.

  • Classroom Lessons

    All students will receive at least one lesson from the counselor each month. The school counseling core curriculum was developed around the American School Counselor Association (ASCA)’s Mindsets and Behaviors. View the district’s K-5 school counseling curriculum map.

    Student Specialized Groups

    Based on student, school, and community needs, the counselor will facilitate various academic, social, and emotional small groups throughout the school year.

    Individual Counseling

    Students can be referred for individual counseling services by a parent/guardian, staff member, or themselves. Individual counseling in the school setting is solution-focused and short-term in nature. Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you would like to speak further about individual counseling services for your child.
