A NOTE FROM THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR, MRS. COOK
 
 

The Developmental counseling program at Montpelier Elementary follows
the American School Counseling Association and the
Prince George’s County
model of providing guidance and counseling services to students through classroom lessons, small group, individual counseling, and school-wide programs.  These programs help develop leadership skills and promote a positive
school culture and a productive and peaceful school climate through the use of Character Education, Conflict Resolution, and Career Exploration.   These programs also promote a safe and orderly learning environment. 

Here some ways the students and parents can access the counselor:       

Put a note in my mailbox, this can be done in the main office.

Tell me you need to talk me privately, give me a note when you see me in the halls, in class, or at lunch.     

Ask your teacher to send me an e-mail.

Ask your parent to call or send me an e-mail

PERSONAL EDUCATION PLANS 

 

  The Personal Education Plan (PEP) is a tool that will help students parent/guardians plan, with the school counselor, for high school graduation and college and/or career preparedness.  It introduces career clusters, encourages critical thinking about future planning connects the students’ strengths and weaknesses and likes and dislikes to career possibilities.   
This year the counselor will visit first and fourth grade classes to complete the Personal Education Plans.  The PEPs will be sent for parent input.
