Hello Kit Carson Family,
My name is Sarah Woods and I am the school guidance counselor for Kit Carson Elementary School. As your school counselor my number one job is to help you and your child have a successful school experience! I work closely with students, parents, and staff to help our students achieve to their highest potential academically, socially, and emotionally.
Some of the services offered through our guidance program are:
- Classroom Guidance:
Classroom Guidance offers lessons to students in a whole class setting. This school year I plan to focus on the six pillars of character to help our students grow as positive members of a community. We will be learning about respect, responsibility, citizenship, fairness, caring, and trustworthiness.
Small groups are a great way for students to share and deal with common issues. Students would meet for about 10 sessions to help them focus on ways of dealing and overcoming a problem or situation.
Sometimes students need one on one attention to deal with adjusting to difficult school or family situations. Children need to have an outlet for situations that may negatively impact their lives whether it be academically or with family and or peers. Some examples of situations that may arise are deployment of a parent, divorce, a death, or illness.
As your school guidance counselor these are just a few of the major services I have to offer. I will also be working closely with the Family Resource Center and Youth Services Center to make sure students have their needs met and transitions into our school, as well as, into middle school go smoothly. If you need any help throughout the school year I am more than happy to be of any assistance possible. I look forward to serving the Kit Carson Elementary Community!
