Counselor Services

Diplomat Elementary is committed to the positive growth of children academically and emotionally. We support this commitment by offering specific services to students through our School Counselor. Ms. Durst, our counselor, visits classrooms to present lessons on character, social skills and bully prevention. She also has set times to meet with students individually or in small groups to guide them with difficult or painful situations.

The following services are available to students:

                Individual Crisis Counseling – as needed

                Individual Counseling – 6 Sessions

                Small groups with focus on Social Skills, Grief or Loss, Anger Control, and , School Success.

                Rise N’ Shine Group for students with Attendance Issues.

Ms. Durst can also assist families with referrals to cooperating agencies. She works closely with our School Social Worker to provide assistance to families who are homeless, or who find themselves in financial crisis. Our school can provide uniforms, shoes and emergency food to those in need.

Please contact Ms. Durst at the school if you would like additional information regarding any of these services.
