Programs

Classroom Guidance Lessons:

Classroom Guidance is a developmental program of classes to foster students’ academic, career, and personal/social development. Classes are preventative in nature and empower students with self-knowledge, coping strategies, and life skills that will assist them in becoming problem solvers, collaborative workers, and responsible citizens.

Examples:

  • Internet Safety
  • Academic/Career Planning

School Wide Programs:

At Swift Creek Middle, we have many school wide programs to reinforce the importance of academics and expectations of behavior.

Examples:

  • Promote Respect
  • Career Speaker Series
  • Career and College Month
  • Specialty Center Presentations
  • Make A Change (MAC) Club

Counselor appointment request slips can be found in the school counseling office. Students are urged to stop by the counseling office before school, during class change, or after school if he/she wishes to see the counselor. It is not necessary; however, for the student to make an appointment. Teachers may contact counselors by note or email about a student, but are asked to refrain from putting confidential information in emails. When a counselor sends a pass for a student, the student is to be sent at the convenience of the teacher, unless otherwise indicated on the pass. If the student cannot be sent right away, please send word to the counselor.

Services

Individual Counseling:

Individual Counseling is a one-to-one meeting with the counselor to discuss a problem or topic of interest that may be impacting a student’s academic success.

Group Counseling:

Small group counseling is needs based and usually meets once a week for four to six weeks. Small groups provide members the opportunity to share ideas and learn from each other and a counselor.

Examples of Small Group Counseling:

  • Attendance
  • Study Skills
