Welcome to School Counseling at Westridge Elementary!
Westridge School Counselors
We are so much more than Guidance! School Counselors provide for the
social and emotional growth of all students. School Counselors teach
communication skills. School Counselors teach goal-setting and decision
making. School Counselors teach career exploration. School Counselors
reach each student through a comprehensive Guidance curriculum.
Students will receive these Guidance lessons bi-monthly. School
Counselors also provide small group and individual school counseling to
recommended students who may need a bit more support in the areas of
communication, social or emotional skill development, or academic
success. School Counseling by design is meant to quickly support a
student so he or she may return to the classroom ready to learn. School
Counseling is not meant to take the place of therapeutic counseling.
School Counselors can refer parents to outside resources if a student is
in need of more support.
We look forward to partnering with you and your student for his/her
school success. If you have any questions about School Counseling
services or School Counselors, or if you would like to discuss your
concerns you can contact Mrs. Fasana at firstname.lastname@example.org; Mrs. Hanger (Tues, Thurs, Friday) email@example.com or
