    Vision & Mission

    Vision Statement

    Woodville’s School Counseling Program will provide a comprehensive, developmental, data driven counseling program that supports and enhances student potential and academic achievement. The program will work in partnerships with educators, parents, and with the community to develop a support-system that ensures all students at Woodville are prepared to become life-long learners and productive citizens.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of Woodville Elementary Counseling Program is to provide quality and nurturing school counseling services to assist with academic, career and personal/social development of all students. It is in hope that students will be inspired to be possibility-thinkers, life-long learners, and responsible citizens through collaboration with teachers, administrators, and parents, and community partners. The school counselor will advocate and assist all Woodville students to be successful learners and problem-solvers.

    Counseling Services

    Individual counseling is available to students at the request of students, parents, and teachers.  Individual counseling services may be used to address developmental, academic, and/or social and emotional concerns. Typically there will be 1-2 meetings to address a specific issue, and does not require parent permission, however a student may need to additional support and a parent will be notified at that time. Please do not hesitate to contact the school to discuss concerns you might have about your student

    Group counseling is available to students throughout the entire school year.  Quite often it is comforting for a student to work with peers in a small group setting to discuss similar concerns or refresh skills.  Group members are selected by parent, teacher, or administrative staff.  Parental permission is mandatory prior to a student participating in a group.

    Classroom guidance lessons are designed to help develop personal, social, academic, and career development of all students K-5. Each lesson students learn through activity features hands-on and interactive lessons. I will be working closely with teachers to ensure that classroom guidance lessons are apparent for all developmental needs of student K-5 to ensure overall growth and success. All classes K-5 will receive one classroom guidance lesson per month and/or upon teacher’s request focusing on that month’s character trait.
