School Counseling Information & Resources
Overview of School Counseling Services:
- Classroom Lessons – This year the counselor will once again be a part of the specials rotation. All students in grades 1-4 will receive a guidance lesson in their classroom each week.
- Student Specialized Groups – Based on student, school, and community needs, the counselor, with the help of Syntero, will facilitate various academic, social, and emotional student groups throughout the school year.
- Individual Counseling – Students can be referred for individual counseling services by a parent/guardian, staff member, or themselves. Parent/guardian permission is required for two or more sessions. Individual counseling in the school setting is solution-focused and short-term in nature.
- Responsive Services – Responsive services are designed to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns.
- Consultations & Other Indirect Services – The counselors work closely with families, staff, and community to best support our students.
- “Syntero provides valuable support to at risk school-aged children and adolescents exhibiting behaviors that indicate a need for therapeutic interventions and prevention services. A team of specialized therapists and outreach clinicians provide treatment and prevention programming as well as special educational seminars for parents, teachers, and administrators in area school districts and the community. The objective of these programs and services is to strengthen resiliency and coping skills, decrease disruptive behaviors, provide prevention and support for at risk students, and increase classroom success.”
The Counseling Department’s curriculum at Cardington-Lincoln Elementary School has been developed to meet the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) Standards.

School Counseling Quarterly Newsletters
The elementary school counselor is once again a part of the specials rotation for the 2019-2020 school year. All students in grades 1-4 will receive a guidance lesson in their classroom each week. Most lessons are based around the Zones of Regulation, as well as the character education program, “Character Counts!“, and its six pillars of character: respect, responsibility, citizenship, fairness, caring, and trustworthiness.
Student Specialized Groups
Student specialized groups are an integral part of a comprehensive school counseling program. Based on student, school, and community needs, the counselors will facilitate various academic, social, and emotional student groups throughout the school year. Parent/guardian permission is required for students to participate in these specialized groups.
