Norton's School Counselor for Kindergarten through 4th Grade is Rebecca School
Mrs. School is available to all students, and comes to classrooms frequently to teach
- coping skills
- problem solving
- bullying prevention
- organization skills
- and how to be safe, healthy, and helpful.
Students who come to the school counselor are never there because they are in trouble. Usually they are there for support with their academics, some challenges or changes in their life, working through some uncomfortable feelings, or getting help with problem solving. Mrs. School usually meets with students at their own request and sometimes they are referred by their parents or staff members. Sometimes students may earn lunch or time with Mrs. School for achieving a goal set by them and their teachers!
Drop-in one-day activities are open to the whole school. If a student seems to be having some overwhelming feelings that are impacting their functioning, school counselors will reach out to the parents or guardians and provide resources and ideas. Some students may participate in the Peer Support Network "Save the Drama for Your Mama!". Mrs. School will get a parent or guardian's permission before students participate in other regular small groups.
Mrs. School really enjoys helping students explore careers that involve the Trades and Career Technical Education as well as ones that require College. All students get to participate with her in Career Exploration in our Career Gallery Walk.
Mrs. School also closely supervises School Counseling Master's Degree students to teach them practical school counseling skills as well as provide more resources for Norton Students.
