Ridgeview’s School Counselor is Mrs. Woolery. I am exited to be the counselor again this year at Ridgeview. This is my 15th year as a school counselor I am so excited to be here at Ridgeview and sharing my many years of counseling experience & knowledge!
To best assist the needs for Ridgeview I am going to offering different programs, services and counseling groups throughout the school year.
Events For August and September
- Operation School Bell. This is a free program for families in need of assistance for clothing for students who attend Kindergarten to 12th To qualify for this program, families need to be financially struggling and qualify for the Free and Reduced program. This program has limited openings for eligible Ridgeview families so please contact Mrs. Woolery as soon as possible since dates fill up quickly and become available typically by the end of August.
- Guidance Counseling Groups. Throughout the school year, students in grades kindergarten through fifth have the opportunity to participate in small group counseling sessions. The small group experience is an enjoyable way for students to benefit from personal growth as well as to gain support from peers with similar needs. Group arrangements are typically made through parent and teacher referrals. Groups are created as needed according to varying topics. Such small groups may focus on confidence building, anger management, impulse control, changing families/divorce, friendship, social skills, study skills, deployment, and transitions to school. The topics for the groups will vary depending to need and request. The groups will be 20-30min for 6-8 weeks during the school day. Please note that the classroom teachers helps set up an appropriate time for the groups to meet so that students are not missing important information.
**Parents if you would like more information about either event or have a child that you feel would qualify and benefit from Operation School Bell or a Counseling Group please notify Mrs. Woolery via phone (495-1149 ext. 6664), email firstname.lastname@example.org or in person.
Ridgeview has great families and staff that I am looking forward to a great school year! Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any student concerns!
