The mission of the School Counselor is to advocate and support students with their social, emotional, and educational development and work cooperatively with the educational staff, parents, and community. This is done through a three-pronged focus of:
Prevention - The school counselor will assist in the development and delivery of mental health, Social Learning and wellness interventions, programs, and training.
Intervention - The School Counselor will provide direct, solution focused mental health services to students and families and crisis intervention, when necessary.
Resourcing - The School Counselor will coordinate referrals to school and community support services.
Reasons To Contact The School Counselor:
Emotional Distress: Depression, Anxiety, Anger, and/or other mental health concerns.
We strive to affirm our students and help them REACH for greatness. We have all made a promise, The Frederica Promise, to: RESPECT others, ourselves and our property; show ENTHUSIASM for learning; work on ACHIEVEMENT, to do our very best; make COMMUNICATION a priority; and uphold the HONOR code, even when no one is looking! The counseling and Guidance department is committed to help reinforce these character traits in everything we do.
Middle School students will have an opportunity to be honored as our REACH Student of the Month (one from each grade monthly). This elite award is given to those students who consistently uphold The Frederica Promise and is voted on by administration and faculty.
