Core Curriculum Lessons

Sara Donaldson, our school counselor, leads core curriculum lessons in all K–5 classrooms to support our academic program goals. We base our core curriculum lessons throughout the year on categories that fall under the three counseling domains: 

  • Academic skills
  • Personal-social skills
  • Career awareness

Group Counseling

Sara Donaldson accepts referrals for students who would benefit from small group counseling experiences. Small groups focus on skills including friendship, study skills, divorce/separation, grief/loss, and anger management. We also offer additional topics throughout the year based on student need. The benefit of group counseling is that it provides an opportunity for students to meet other children who are experiencing concerns similar to their own. 

Individual Counseling

Call us at (804) 723-2300 to discuss your concerns. If appropriate, we can schedule a time each week when your child can meet with Mrs. Donaldson for individual counseling. The school counselor typically provides four to six weeks of counseling sessions. 

Consultation

An important part of the school counselor's role is consultation. A counselor may consult with parents, faculty, other school staff, and community agencies in order to best meet the individual needs of all students.
