Hi, my name is Anne Colunga and I am the school counselor at Sterling. You may not even be aware that Sterling Elementary has a school counselor on every Monday and Thursday, as well as every other Wednesday. The times we live in are exciting, challenging and ever changing. Our children live in a diverse society with new technologies and many new opportunities every day. Children need our support and guidance during their elementary years to begin to prepare them for the unique challenges, both personally and developmentally, that will have an impact on their academic achievement. Decision-making, communication, life skills and character values all begin to develop during the elementary years. It is also a time when students develop and acquire attitudes toward school, self, peers, social groups and family. School counselors can work together with the teachers to develop comprehensive developmental school counseling programs and provide prevention and intervention services for your student so that they may experience success at a young age. The skills that our children acquire during their elementary years build on a foundation for future success.
If you feel your child may benefit from counseling, please contact Sterling Elementary and they will get the message to me. Thanks-
