hands Welcome to Mrs. Winger's Counselor's Corner!hands

I hope to keep parents and students informed about what is going on in the Counseling Department throughout the year.  Please check my page often for updates and resources that can assist you with your student.
  The focus of the counseling program at Avon Intermediate School East (AISE) is to provide  pro-active, comprehensive services that meet the needs of all children. 

Services available include:
 
  • Individual Counseling:  One on one counseling services are available to children for a variety of issues. These services can be provided on a regular (4-6 sessions) or as needed basis. Referrals can come from parents, teachers, staff, or the student. Counselor/ Student confidentiality is honored at all times except in  cases of possible harm to self or others and reports of abuse. Students are encouraged to discuss their feelings and concerns with their parents.
 
  • Group Counseling:  Group Counseling encourages children to help each other, share ideas, respect others, and develop positive skills that will last them a lifetime. (Divorce Support, Skills for Success, Stress Management, and other groups, as needed, are offered at AISE.) (6-8 sessions)
 
  • Classroom Guidance:  Helping kids learn the skills they need for life!

  • GRADUATION PLANS for 6th Graders
    Grad cap  
    Now is a perfect time to start looking at the 6th grade Graduation Plan.  All 6th graders are required by the State to complete a Graduation Plan with their parents.  You can access that information by clicking on the following link:

     http://www.avon-schools.org/cms/lib02/IN01001885/Centricity/Domain/4374/6th%20Grade%20Graduation%20Plan%20Sample%202010-11.pdf

    Graduation plans can be completed online through Indiana Career Explorer, but please also turn in a paper copy.  Please make sure that your student completes his/her plan and returns it to the Guidance office.
