Kids don’t come with instructions…so we have Counseling Services

Counseling Service is to facilitate student learning about their emotional and psychological development and to positively impact academic decision-making and retention. The staff works to help students resolve problems that interfere with personal, social, and academic functioning while also emphasizing prevention, development, adjustment, and wellness.

To ensure that St. Francis de Sales grade school students reaches his or her full potential, school counselors work in collaboration with classroom teachers in order to reach beyond the scope of textbooks. – You can contact Beech Acres Parenting Center (513-231-6630) to get advice from child development experts and to help you find a program or resource that is right for you and your family. There are parenting education classes, and a once-a-year conference on practical parenting called For the Love of Kids to help you deal with the challenges of raising great kids. – A web site that provides information and resources “to build parenting skills that help parents to discipline kids from toddlers to teens as well as to encourage children and adolescents to feel positive about themselves and to become the winners they were meant to be.” – offers an assortment of information on a child’s development. “Although children develop through a generally predictable sequence of steps and milestones, they may not proceed through these steps in the same way or at the same time. A child’s development is greatly influenced by factors in his or her environment and the experiences he or she has.” – Build parenting skills that help to provide structure and encouragement for children of all ages from toddlers to teens.

With the children’s safety and well being in mind, it is most important that parents complete an Emergency Transportation Form that will be kept on file in the Latchkey Program. In the event of an emergency that requires the child/children being transported, this form will allow them to be transported. This form also gives permission for medical treatment from the facility chosen by the parent.
