Counselor’s Corner


Back to School Tips



 Connect with your child’s counselor. When your child enters middle

           school, getting to know his/her school counselor can be helpful.

           Counselors play a unique role in your child’s life and are in a

           pivotal position within the school community to help.


           We are vital members of your child’s educational team and

           as such can facilitate a dialog between parents, teachers,

           and students in terms of your student’s abilities, goals,

           as well as any areas where your child may  be experiencing



          During your meeting or phone call to the school counselor,

          you can share the concerns and challenges your child faces.

          As a parent, you know your child’s strengths and needs best.

          The counselor is positioned to help you understand your child

          as a student.


        Communication is key. The counselor meets with your child’s

        team of teachers in order to share information and assist your

        child with any barriers to learning. The counselor also acts as an

        advocate for your child and at the same time encourages your

        child to self  advocate via communication with teachers and peers.


        Counselors also can help  you and your child locate resources both

        within and outside of school which can help with your child’s overall

        success.This partnership is valuable to your child’s education

        as well as their preparation in life beyond school.
