Welcome back to some, welcome aboard to others! We are excited either way. Parents and guardians, I want to let you know that your child has a school counselor available to assist you and your child in having a successful school year. As the school counselor, I work with parents, teachers, and students in a variety of ways. All students at JES see me twice a month through our classroom guidance program. The FSSD counseling program uses the Tennessee School Counseling Standards (online) curriculum. As counselor I also do the following:
- Individual sessions with students (per request of parent, student, teacher, or administrator)
- Small group sessions for students with similar concerns such as divorce, death, and friendships
- Parent conferences
- Information for parents (parenting tips)
Please call me at 794-4837 with any questions or concerns.
Divorce Group Information
Divorce groups for 3rd and 4th grade students whose parents are divorced or going through a divorce will begin meeting the week of 12/5. Groups are conducted by Mrs. Phillips (school counselor). Third graders will meet Mondays @ 2:45 and 4th graders will meet Tuesdays @ 2:35 in Mrs. Phillips’ classroom. If your child is interested in participating, they can see Mrs. Phillips for a permission slip. Please call the school if you have any questions or concerns.
