Counselor Message

A Note from the Elementary Counselor

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! This year I have the pleasure of being part of the A’Takamul International School family, as the Elementary Counselor.

The Elementary Counseling Department has as mission to challenge students to overcome their learning and personal difficulties in order to enhance their full potential and empower them to become successful parents, professionals and global citizens, as well as lifelong learners.

Also the Elementary Counseling Department aims to help students make better choices by implementing programs that promote values, goal setting, social skills, diversity awareness, bullying prevention, and career exploration.

At the same time, the Department facilitates one-on-one sessions to those students who need social/emotional or academic support. As well as small group guidance sessions, covering specific topics such as social skills, anger management, problem solving, grief, among others.

Feel free to contact the Elementary School Counseling Department if you have any concern about your child’s social/emotional or academic development.
