An elementary counselor’s job has many parts! The counselor meets with students in the classroom, individually, in groups, and with their parents and/or teachers. The counselor also helps families and students in need to connect with community agencies. Below is some information about the counseling programs available at Belfair Elementary:
Individual Counseling for personal, social and academic reasons.
Small Group Counseling: for groups of 2-6 students identified using data including: SAEBR’s screener, Office Disciplinary Referrals, frequent individual visits to Social Worker or Health Room
Teen Mentors : Elementary students are paired with North Mason High School student mentors. High school students who choose to become mentors go through a rigorous interview and selection process, iTeen mentors spend an hour a week with their student “mentee” during school hours providing academic and emotional support. They work on homework or hobbies, play games, or just talk.
