The School Counselors for CEMS for the 2019-2020 school year are Ms. Sturgeon & Ms. Royal. Working with students in grades 5 & 6 will be Ms. Royal, while Ms. Sturgeon will be working with students in grades 7 & 8. Classroom lessons will be presented to each grade level, and the classroom curriculum will focus on bully prevention, peer relationships, goal setting and career exploration.
The School Counselors will facilitate lunch groups as needed. Individual students, parents and teachers can make a referral for a lunch group. The School Counselors will do their best to include as many students as possible during the school year.
Ms. Sturgeon & Ms. Royal will also meet with individuals on an as-needed and/or regular basis to ensure each student's experience at CEMS is positive.
Furthermore, both counselors are able to recommend resources in the community, which may benefit a family in a time of need. Parents are invited to contact the Counseling Department with any academic concerns (i.e. scheduling, standardized testing, private school applications) or any questions about their child's progress and well-being.
