Guidance

    Greetings Kedron Knights,

    We are excited for another year as school counselors at Kedron Elementary School. As school counselors, our goal is to ensure that all students have a positive learning experience. We look forward to sharing a wonderful school year together!

    The mission of the school counseling program at Kedron Elementary School is to provide a comprehensive, developmental program that contributes to the educational experience and achievement of all students through targeted lessons and activities in the personal/social, academic, and career domains. School counselors, in partnership with other educators, parents, and community members, ensure all students are provided with an education which will enable them to become capable and productive members of society.

    Classroom Guidance Lessons – Students will visit the counseling classroom each month and participate in lessons intended to proactively improve their educational success, social skills, self-concepts, and overall life skills. Fayette County school counselors follow a comprehensive, developmental counseling curriculum based on state and national standards.

    Small Groups – We facilitate instructional groups giving students the opportunity to learn information and skills that will help them be more successful in school. After completing a school wide needs assessment, topics may include: study skills, coping skills, listening skills, friendship skills, and Rainbows (grief, loss, and divorce).  All counseling is short-term and confidential. 

    Individual Sessions – Meeting with individual students to learn more about their lives and their needs is essential to a comprehensive school counseling program. We are available to meet with individuals and offer assistance as students work toward their educational, social, and/or personal goals. All counseling is short-term and confidential.

    Consultation – Our desire as school counselors is to help our children be successful at home, at school, in the community, and in life. Often, we serve as consultants for parents and teachers. There are resources available for parents concerning parenting, child development, discipline, school success, and other issues that we would be happy to share with you.

    Please feel free to contact us for a confidential discussion regarding any issue concerning your child. We will be happy to discuss with you any aspect of the school counseling program. Our goal is to provide encouragement, support, and positive reinforcement for your child here at school. You can contact us either through email, Nicole Douglas douglas.nicole@mail.fcboe.org Rebekah Gilliam gilliam.rebekah@mail.fcboe.org or by phone, 770-486-2700. We look forward to meeting you soon!
