Welcome to the NHES Counseling Page!!

 

 School counseling focuses on personal/social areas, academic areas, and career exploration.  These areas are covered in weekly guidance classes, through small groups, and individual counseling. 

 

Shout Out's

Student/Teacher Shout Out's will be placed in the Counselor's Shout Out Box when a student/teacher experiences an act of kindness or witnesses kind acts toward others. The shout out's are read every Friday during morning announcements.  The shout outs are anonymously filled out for the person who showed kindness along with a brief statement about the kindness expressed.  Please encourage your students to show kindness and respect to everyone without expecting anything in return. The goal is to have students paying it forward without even thinking twice.

Small Group Information

 As a component of our Counseling Program, small group sessions on various topics will be offered to the students throughout the year. These topics will focus on various life skills such as friendship, self-control, anger management, social skills, grief, building academic success, etc.. in which students may participate and benefit from the support of their group members.  However, in order for a student to participate in a small group opportunity the parent/guardian must give written permission. Permission forms can be found on the forms page.
