WHAT DOES A SCHOOL COUNSELOR DO?
School counselors help to support the social, emotional and academic needs of all students. We accomplish this by providing
- Classroom lessons
- Individual counseling
- Group counseling
- Crisis intervention
- Consultation with parents and teachers
- Coordination with outside agencies and therapists
- Referrals for community resources
All counseling and group sessions in a school setting are short-term in nature, and focus on solutions to help students succeed socially, emotionally and academically. School counseling activities help students gain confidence in their ability to interact with others, learn how to solve problems, manage and work through feelings, develop coping and calming skills, recognize their strengths, and much more!
Topics covered include friendship, empathy, calming strategies, problem solving, diversity, kindness, self-esteem, resilience, optimism, career interests and personal safety.
The school counseling program at Eccles Elementary is aligned to the standards set forth by the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) National Model.
The Canby School District Comprehensive Counseling Program is crucial to current and future student success.

The Canby School District’s Comprehensive School Counseling Program’s mission is to provide a safe, nurturing and supportive environment for all students, by proactively and effectively partnering with other educators, parents, and community stakeholders. We support the academic and career success of all students through their social and emotional growth.
