NME School Counseling Mission

The mission of the New Manchester Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide effective support services in the domains of academic, personal/social and career development that align with the learning styles of the students. Support services include instruction and guidance counseling to:

* Reduce barriers to learning which may challenge academic achievement

* Assist in the development of positive character traits

* Teach effective goal setting, problem solving and decision-making skills

* Encourage the demonstration of appropriate behavior

* Develop successful personal and career related relationships throughout life


To provide a safe and supportive environment for all students!

We Provide Services In:

Classroom Guidance: The counselor conducts classroom lessons geared to enhance personal, social and academic development, and students' career awareness.

Small Groups: Students meet in a small group, facilitated by a counselor, with students who may be experiencing similar challenges or common situations. These students are referred by staff members and/or parents.

Individual Counseling: The counselor interacts with students in a one on one setting, as a preventative approach or responsive method.

Prevention Activities: Career Day, Red Ribbon Week (Drug Awareness), Bully Prevention Campaign, Personal Safety, Hearing (except during Covid19 Pandemic) & Vision screenings, and Eagle Awards (Recognition for the Display of Good Character)

If you need to make a referral please contact counselors:

Both counselors interact with students from every grade level.

However, due to the student enrollment each counselor primarily works with assigned grade levels.
