SCHOOL COUNSELORS ARE HERE FOR YOU
The school counselors help students and families navigate the high school years. By working on academic interventions, social/emotional skills, and college and career planning we help students find their definition of success. Through one-on-one counseling, group sessions, classroom lessons, and large group meetings, we help students with the tools they need throughout high school.
As we go through life, sometimes we find ourselves needing some extra help as we cope with challenges. Here are a few tips to help you regulate your emotions.
- take deep breaths- breathe in slowly through the nose and exhale slowly through the mouth
- get outside when possible...but maintain social distance
- limit your media intake--this includes social media and broadcast media
- set and maintain a schedule
- stay in touch with those that mean a lot to you
