Our counseling department is dedicated to providing services to all students throughout the school. We have two counselors - Ms. Range and Ms. Wingate. Ms. Range serves students in grades PreK, 1st, 2nd, and 4th, while Ms. Wingate serves students in grades PreK, Kindergarten, 3rd, and 5th. Together, we conduct a variety of small groups (grief, social skills, self regulation, emotional support, family structural changes, and friendship, etc) and classroom guidance lessons in addition to providing students with individual counseling services. Both counselors are 504 chairs, SST coordinators, and aid in the RTI behavior process.
It is the mission of Woodland Elementary’s school counseling program to provide a comprehensive school counseling program for all students by encouraging students to grow in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social development while
receiving a high quality education.
The vision of the school counseling program at Woodland Elementary is for all students to learn to their full potential in an encouraging and safe environment. By providing this learning environment, students will be able to become life-long learners and productive citizens in their community and world.
