The St. Francis Xavier school counseling program serves all students Pre-K-8 and employs strategies to support our students so they can remain intellectually competent, religious, loving, open to growth, and committed to doing justice!
The primary focus of a school counselor at the elementary level is prevention. The main objective is to help all students learn basic life skills and help your child have a successful school year. Frequently, non-academic issues can get in the way of a student’s learning (especially during these early developmental years). Addressing these issues early can help your child to succeed in school!
Reasons your child may contact the school counselor:
Reasons parents might contact the school counselor:
“It’s almost impossible to get Jason to do his homework at night.“ I’m looking for some resources (books, websites, videos) on how to deal with a certain issue regarding my child”
School Counseling is a short term resource. If there are greater issues that need extensive attention, I will be glad to assist you in finding an outside counselor to work with your child. I in turn can maintain contact with your student’s counselor or therapist to ensure that therapeutic goals are supported here in school.
