Bullying can become a big issue in schools if it’s not stopped right away. I encourage students to report bullying before it gets out of hand and fights start. Students must report bullying on the bus, to the teacher, office and to me as soon as possible. Parents may also report bullying.
The following types of therapy are used in the school counseling program: play therapy, client centered therapy, behavior therapy, and cognitive intervention therapy. I prefer individual counseling because students are more focused when they are not with their peers.
Please contact me if you are interested in working with programs at our school. We need volunteers and parents to get involved in our school. I can be reached by phone at 252-826-4413 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We believe the Halifax County School District has a responsibility to provde students with a safe, motivating, and innovative learning environment. We believe that all children, regardless of differences, deserve to be fully challenged and equipped to meet their individual potential. We believe that PK-12 education should address the "whole child" and that holistic education leads to: A value for academic knowledge and competency; an appreciation for one's broader community; a diverse worldview; and a lifelong love for learning. We believe that instuctional competency and educational best practices in the classroom are critical factors in reaching individual student potential. We believe that physical and emotional health and wellness are important contributing facotrs to achieving the individual and colective goals of students and staff. We believe that a professional and supportive working enironment is essential. We believe parent and adult involvement support, strengthen, and expand learning. We believe that a publisc-school district has a reponsibility to build the community; develop partnership and cohesiveness withn the community; and challenge the community to offer supports that meet all the needs of the citizens. We believe in providing culturally competent services to the students, their families and stakeholders.
