Who Can See the Counselor?
The counselor's door is always open to support the needs of all students at Keone`ula Elementary. Counselors meet weekly with students in group and individual sessions to provide students with guidance on issues impeding learning or emotional/social development, such as:
 
  • Peer relationships
  • Social skills
  • Family transitions i.e. Deployment, divorces, death/illness
  • Anger management
  • Self-esteem
We are also always available for drop-in counseling as issues or needs arise.
 
 
Counselor Services
Here are some of the responsibilities that we have at Keone`ula Elementary School:
 
  • Guidance lessons- Counselors implement classroom guidance lessons concerning a variety of topics. Problem-solving, peer relationships, and conflict-resolution skills are examples of guidance lessons taught.
  • Individual and Group Counseling-We provide counseling for individual and groups of students to teach skills they will need in order to be successful in the school setting.
  • Observations-Counselors can observe classrooms and students to help adults gain a better perspective in ways to support our students.
  • Consultations- As a team (teachers, other staff members, students, and parents) we can explore interventions and alternatives to best support students.
  • Coordinate school-wide activities – We organize events such as the Halloween Parade, Semester Awards Assemblies and Spirit week.
