Welcome to Mrs. Winger's Counselor's Corner!
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!
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to get to meet all of our new students and to catch up with the 6th graders who are returning to East! It is going to be a fantastic year!!!
