HEY SNOWDON COUGARS!
Mrs. Snider here, your school counselor. This is the place to find information on what a school counselor does, community resources, social & emotional learning activities, ways to contact me and more!
At Snowdon, we believe in the mission
of the Snowdon Elementary Counseling Program
to contribute, along with staff, families and community, positively and successfully to the academic, career and social & emotional development
of ALL students by utilizing a comprehensive program based on data and researched best practices.
It is the vision of the Snowdon Elementary Counseling Program for EVERY student to develop the academic, career & social/emotional skills to be successful students and become responsible & productive citizens who are college and career ready.
My goal is to reach every student, every year! This is usually accomplished by teaching in the classroom, having lunches with students, doing short-term individual counseling, group counseling and having random chats in the hall! If you, as a parent, would like to have your child see me, please reach out to me via phone, email or a visit here to Snowdon. Typical discussion topics include, but aren't limited to, healthy relationships, anti-bullying & harassment, focusing in the classroom, family concerns, receiving resources (such as food, housing, outside counseling, etc), and anything else that will help your child be the best student & friend they can be.
School is CLOSED- now what?
We have entered uncharted territory- distance learning! The building may be closed but learning will go on. Here you can find resources to help with the day to day management of emotions, learning "new normals" and adjusting to different routines (such as teaching you and your children to navigate that google classroom!).
