Welcome to Madison Heights Elementary school counseling page! My name is Jessica Harrell, and I'm excited to be the school counselor here at MHES! We have all kinds of emotions everyday and I'm here to help!
Students can sign up to visit with me for any reason. If they are having a great day I would love to know about it. If they are having a bad day I'm here to help them get through it. Students can sign up to see me, or just let the teacher, or parent know.
Parents, I am here to help you also. Please reach out if there's anything I can help with. I am here to assist with your child's success. I can also provide you with referrals to community resources, developing attendance plans, behavior plans to make sure your child is successful in school.
Weekly Guidance Each week I will be providing guidance lessons. These lessons focus on character traits such as responsibility, respect, citizenship and honesty. Lessons will also discuss bullying, ways to handle a bully, and what bullying is. These guidance lessons focus on building positive relationships with others. The goal of the counseling program here at Madison Heights Elementary to promote social-emotional, academic, and career success.
