*The Dublin City School's Elementary Guidance Program consists of classroom guidance, group counseling, individual counseling, and parent/teacher collaboration. All of these practices correlate with The American School Counselor Association Standards and the Dublin City School Counseling Framework.
*Being "proactive" is a major emphasis as each classroom will receive several guidance lessons throughout the year. Topics such has self-control, resilience, anger/stress management, friendship skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, empathy/respect, responsibility, and personal safety will be discussed.
*Guidance classes support and promote our culture of enrichment that includes the following thinking habits: collaboration, perseverance, communicating confidently, thinking flexibly, creativity, and asking questions.
*Guidance information will be sent home periodically in hard copy or by email. Classroom guidance topics, parenting topics, and social skill strategies will be given to help assist in the success of your child academically, socially, and emotionally.
*There are many parenting resources in the guidance office. If you are looking for a certain "guidance topic" or have any questions, please feel free to call or email me.
