Students may see the guidance counsellor for many reasons. Some of them include
A death, dealing with disappointment, making friends, family concerns, coping with stress, rejection, peer pressure, choices, etc.
To see the counsellor, students fill out a self-referral form found in their grade level hallway. The student fills in the form and will then either give it to the counsellor or slip it under the counsellor's door if the counsellor is absent. Teachers and parents may also refer students to the counsellor.
The school guidance counsellor be reached at 668-6249 or via email at: email@example.com.
