As Sun Valley's school counselors, we are primarily interested in helping students, parents, families, and faculty of Sun Valley Elementary School. The counseling program is a research-based curriculum designed to improve student achievement. We do classroom lessons on such topics as bullying, anger management, social skills, and child safety. We also provide extra help in small groups for friendship skills, behavior management, and solving problems, in addition to seeing children individually. As school counselors, we have access to community resources for counseling referrals, parenting help, food, rental or power assistance, clothing, support groups and a host of other services. The counseling program offers assistance to students during times of crisis in order to provide support to maximize their academic achievement. We are available Monday-Friday throughout the school year to assist the families of Sun Valley.
