    What do I do?

     

    Classroom Guidance

    All students at Peaster Elementary receive regular classroom guidance lessons. These lessons are developmentally
    appropriate for each grade level, and are focused on
    personal and academic development.

     

    Small Group Counseling

    Small group counseling is available for all students
     as needed.  Some topics covered in small groups:
    social skills, anger, divorce, behavior control and grief.

     

    Individual Counseling

    I often work with students individually for a number of
    problems  that a student might present, such as friendship
    issues, behavior issues, conflict resolution, anger management ,

    just to name a few. Referrals for students to talk to the

    counselor can be made by classroom teachers, by parents ,

    or by the students themselves.

    The child must know that he is a miracle,

    that since the beginning of the world

    there hasn't been, and until the end

    of the  world there will not be, another child

    like him.” ~~Pablo Casals

    If I had my child to raise all over again,
    I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
    I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
    I would do less correcting and more connecting.
    I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
    I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
    I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
    I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
    I'd do more hugging and less tugging.
    ~Diane Loomans, from "If I Had My Child To Raise Over Again"
