What We Do

School counseling programs are collaborative efforts benefiting students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the overall community. School counseling programs should be an integral part of students’ daily educational environment, and school counselors should be partners in student achievement. Please contact our school counselors: Mrs. McCahill (1, 3, and 5), Mrs. Robinson (K, 2, and 4), or Mrs. Gray (Thursdays only).

Core Curriculum Lessons

Chesney McCahill and Brooke Robinson, our school counselors, lead core curriculum lessons in all k–5 classrooms to support our academic program goals. We base our core curriculum lessons throughout the year on categories that fall under the three counseling domains:

  • Academic Development
  • Career Readiness
  • Social Emotional Skills

Group Counseling

Mrs. McCahill, Mrs. Robinson, and Mrs. Gray accept referrals for students who would benefit from small group counseling experiences. Small groups may focus on skills including, but not limited to friendship, study skills, divorce/separation, grief/loss, and anger management. We offer additional topics throughout the year based on student need. The benefit of group counseling is that it provides an opportunity for students to build skills, while meeting other children who are experiencing concerns similar to their own.

Individual Counseling

If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child's designated school counselor. The school counselor typically provides four to six weeks of counseling sessions.


An important part of the school counselor's role is consultation. A counselor may consult with parents, faculty, other school staff, and community agencies in order to best meet the individual needs of all students.
