Dear Parents,

I wanted 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 third 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 for over 12 years. I am looking forward to this upcoming school year, and I am very excited to work with you and your sweet children here at St. Aloysius.

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. I receive recommendations from administrators, teachers, parents and/or students.

Guidance lessons and small group sessions are conducted throughout the year to focus on certain skills and to further strengthen their developmental needs. Details on these will be provided below as the year progresses.


EVALUATIONS AND SPECIAL NEEDS:

Please refer to the parent/student handbook for updated information on evaluations and special needs. (Section VI. Student Services pages 13-14) 

 

If you have any questions or concerns involving your child, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone. You can also click on the Educational Resources for Parents tab for further information.


5th Grade Spiral Checks:

I check spirals every Monday and Thursday from 7:15-7:45 (before school) and from 11:25-11:45 (at recess). Please remind your child(ren) that this service is offered to them. It is a great and easy way to receive full credit for these assignments. One or two points, in the end, could mean all the difference in their final grade!
