 Mrs. Slack
Welcome

 

 

The mission of a Home/School Advisor is to promote life-long learning through a positive school experience. Home/School Advisors provide support services to students through individual, or group sessions and classroom presentations. Topics include, but are not limited to, behavior, self-esteem, divorce, conflict resolution, life-skills, social skills, test anxiety, friendship, new student, grief, substance abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse.

Home/School Advisors provide services to students when there is a referral from a parent, teacher or principal. Once there is a referral, it is the Home/School Advisors job to decide whether the student is more appropriate for an individual or group setting. It is the job of the Home/School Advisor to meet with children from the time of the referral until termination of services.

Parents and students are encouraged to contact Mrs. Slack by phone or e-mail anytime with a school or classroom concern such as:

sudden changes in behavior
homework/grade concerns
anger/behavior management
family changes due to death, divorce, separation
social skills &/or friendship concerns
building self-confidence and responsibility
