We’re very fortunate to have two school counselors at Hurlbutt. Each of these friendly counselors will visit classrooms, help plan school assemblies, and work with children and their parents. Their offices are near the main office.
Here is short list of what the school counselors do at Hurlbutt:
- help new students adjust to Hurlbutt and to their new classes
- meet with individuals and groups of children
- visit classrooms
- plan parent education discussion groups
- work with the nursery schools in the area
While parents are encouraged to contact the appropriate school counselor if their child requires special attention, the priority for the counselors is to work directly with our students and teachers. Much of their time is spent teaching lessons in classrooms, counseling children in small groups and observing children in classrooms. This is the most effective use of their time. If you need to speak with one of them, leave them a brief voice mail message that they will return.
