Core Curriculum Lessons

Mr. Kevin Thompson, our school counselor, leads core curriculum lessons in all grades except second grade. Ms. Katie Scott leads core curriculum lessons in the second grade on Wednesdays. We base our core curriculum lessons throughout the year on categories that fall under the three counseling domains: 

  • Academic skills
  • Personal-social skills
  • Career awareness

Group Counseling

Our counselors accept referrals for students who would benefit from small group counseling experiences. Small groups focus on skills including friendship, study skills, divorce/separation, grief/loss, and anger management. We also offer additional topics throughout the year based on student need. The benefit of group counseling is that it provides an opportunity for students to meet other children who are experiencing concerns similar to their own. 

Individual Counseling

Call us at (804) 723-3653 to discuss your concerns. If appropriate, we can schedule a time each week for your child to meet with one of our counselors for individual counseling. A school counselor typically provides four to six weeks of counseling sessions. 

Consultation

An important part of the school counselor's role is consultation. A counselor may consult with parents, faculty, other school staff, and community agencies in order to best meet the individual needs of all students.

Family Engagement and Behavior Intervention Specialist

Ms. Cathy Naff provides support to students throughout the day to help them achieve success in the classroom. She can also provide assistance to families by connecting them to outside resources. You can reach Ms. Naff at (804) 723-3651.
