WELCOME BACK! I hope you and your families had a wonderful and relaxing summer. As your child’s counselor, I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself as well as tell you all about our Counseling Program. My name is Natalie Sloan and I am thrilled to say, this is my fourth year as the 2nd-5th grade school counselor. I am also a St. Aloysius Alum and before becoming the counselor I worked very closely with our Extension Program. Like always, I am very excited to work with you and your sweet children as we head into a new school year.
The mission of our School Counseling Program is to provide a supportive environment in which each child can develop emotionally, socially, spiritually, physically, and academically. This is accomplished through classroom guidance, small group counseling, individual counseling, academic counseling, consultations, and parent training and support. We know that each student is an individual with specific needs, interests, and abilities so my overall goal is to help your child achieve success from a personal and academic standpoint.
Guidance lessons and small group sessions are conducted throughout the year to focus on certain skills and to further strengthen their developmental needs. Information on these will be provided at a later date.
If you have any questions or concerns involving your child, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone.
Thank you and I look forward to a BEE-utiful school year ahead!
Mrs. Sloan M.Ed., NCC, PLPC
CHARACTER OF THE MONTH
This year the counselors are implementing a character of the month program. Each month will focus on a different character trait which will be introduced to the whole school during assembly on the first Monday of the month. Students will be encouraged to demonstrate that trait all month long until it becomes part of their own character. The character traits include kindness, respectfulness, helpfulness, generosity, courage, loving others, consideration, and patience.
5th Grade Spiral Checks: I review Math spirals every Monday and Thursday before school from 7:15-7:45 and at recess from 11:25-11:45. Please remind your child(ren) that this service is offered to them.
