Counselor's Corner

  • School counselors, formerly known as guidance counselors, help set the tone and build the foundation for developing knowledge, attitudes, and skills for becoming healthy, confident, successful lifelong learners by assisting students in academic success, personal and social growth, and career and college exploration. The Comprehensive School Counseling program at Round Elementary School seeks to meet the needs of ALL students. To help meet student’s needs, it is important for counselors to collaborate with teachers, parents, administrators, and most importantly, students. Our Comprehensive program provides education, prevention, and intervention services to our students. It is our hope that parents and students feel free to utilize these services. We look forward to working with you!
