Sara Bailey-School Counselor
Sarah Metz-School Social Worker
The goal of the counseling program is to ensure that all students are succeeding in school. Services have been created to address the personal, social, academic and career needs of students.
Counseling services include:
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
- Classroom guidance
- Collaboration and consultation with parents and school staff
- School-wide initiatives
- Crisis Response
- Parenting education and Parenting Library
- Mentor Programs with Dartmouth Students
Because counseling is based on a trusting relationship between the counselor and the student, any information shared by the child during counseling sessions will be kept confidential. The only exception to this policy of confidentiality would be in certain situations in which there is an ethical or legal responsibility to limit confidentiality. If you have further questions about confidentiality, please contact Sara.
This year I have decided to continue to offer small lunch groups to all students in the school. These groups of 3-5 students meet weekly for a period of three to four weeks. During these lunches, students get an opportunity to socialize, work on friendships and have an opportunity to share how school is going for them. They are given time to talk to their classmates, as well as an adult, in a small group. Students have come to really enjoy these lunches and see them as a special treat. If you would prefer that your student not participate in these groups, please let me know.
