Help is on the way!

Many times services are initiated when a teacher or parent contacts me.  This year ('11-'12), I launched a new simple form for students to access school counseling services based on their own perceived need for assistance.  I targeted Grades 2-5 by introducing the form to each class and discussed with students in their some of the reasons kids might want to seek help.  Already, I receiving daily requests and some students who seemingly might not have sought help (when needed) have stepped forward with difficulties they're facing.  One student stated she liked the form telling me, "this was a really good idea".  I think so too.

The "Please Help" form gives students a quick way to say they  need to chat.

Students may place completed forms in a locked box.
