    The Elementary School Guidance counselors' purpose is to help students with their academic achievement and social growth and development. Please feel free to contact our Guidance Counselor, Laura Taliaferro, about the services and assistance available to help you help your child succeed!

    School counselors promote and enhance achievement with an annual comprehensive school counseling plan that ensures every student receives school counseling services. Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention with continuous academic, career, and personal/development activities that will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. These activities include classroom guidance, small groups for skill mastery, individual counseling for students with specific needs, and a variety of other proactive and innovative ways to support student performance. 

    School counselors implement a program based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. They also provide resources for staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and that students have access to a safe school climate necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.

    Parents are always welcome to come in or call 754-322-5800 for assistance or advice.
