Topics such as self-control, resiliency, anger, stress, friendship, respect, responsibility, conflict resolution, problem solving, decision making, and personal safety will be discussed. There will also be an emphasis on positive life habits, such as collaboration with peers, creative and innovative thinking, mental flexibility, and perseverance.

WYES School Counselor
As professional school counselors, our goal is to maintain strict confidentiality with students and parents at Wyandot Elementary. All meetings held with the school counselor will remain confidential unless the student or parent gives permission to share information with related parties. However, circumstances do arise when we must disclose information to appropriate professionals based on Ohio State Law and Dublin City Schools District Policy. Reasons for breaking confidentiality include the following: student in danger of harming self, student in danger of harming others, or student in danger of being harmed by others. This information will be reported to building administration in accordance with school policy.
