FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CAN I TALK TO ANY COUNSELOR? 

Yes! The counselors are assigned to grade levels because of the classroom lesson schedule.  Mrs. King is the pre-school, kindergarten, 1st grade and 5th grade counselor at Tara Oaks.  

 However, any counselor is available to talk with you or your child.   We are here to support you.

 

SHOULD I CALL MY CHILD’S COUNSELOR TO KEEP THEM INFORMED?

Yes! Students are our main focus, and we want them to feel happy and safe at school.  We want your child to have an effective learning environment.  Please feel free to call or email us if you have any concerns. 

We can provide resources for eye glasses, food, school supplies, coats, and more if you let us know.   Small group and individual counseling is helpful with family changes, grief, behavior, and friendship skills.

 

HOW CAN MY CHILD CONTACT THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR? 

Your child can write a note and place in counselor's mailbox or office, or your child may ask their teacher for permission to go to the counselor's room.  Mrs. King will have a note outside of her room to be filled out  and returned to her office at Tara Oaks.
