Spirit Creek Middle School Counselors identify and address student needs that will ultimately formulate into academic and personal success. Our main goal is to advocate for our students to ensure they have a positive and successful middle school experience. Counselors work with students individually, in small groups, and within the classroom setting to support and assist them in their academic, social, emotional, and personal development. Counselors also are the liaison between students, parents, community and administrators. Often times, the counselor will facilitate the needs of the student to identify and minimize barriers that stand in the way of student success. Our counselors are important sources of information for referrals and outside resources.
The counselors offer support in areas including:
- Peer relationships
- Social/Emotional development
- Decision making skills
- Communication and conflict resolution
- Fostering self-awareness, acceptance, and diversity
- Teaching time management and organizational skills
- Crisis intervention for students and parents
- Academic Planning
- Individual and Group Counseling
