Welcome to Mrs. Gilhooly's web page!!!
The counseling program at CAS is comprehensive and developmentally-based. Every student receives a series of classroom lessons taught by the Counselor. Lessons include the following topics: "I-Care Rules", self-awareness, social skills, feelings expression, anger management, friendship skills, empathy, bullying awareness and prevention.
Counseling services also include individual and group counseling. Students are referred by school staff or parents/guardians, for a variety of reasons: adjustment issues, academic difficulties, family issues (separation/divorce, death of a family member, problems within the parent-child relationship), friendship/peer problems and concerns regarding classroom behavior. Additionally, the Counselor facilitates the Peer Helper Program, which includes a select group of fifth grade students who serve as volunteers to their fellow students and teachers.If you believe your child would benefit from counseling services, please contact Mrs. Gilhooly at 646-3397 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our district also provides free family counseling at our Family Support Center, located on Southwestern Blvd, 646-9593.
