The vision of the school counseling program at Little Bennett is for all students to reach their maximum capability. As a result, Mrs. Helton has a comprehensive program to address a variety of student needs.
Mrs. Helton provides individual short term counseling. This type of counseling can be referred by a parent, Little Bennett staff member or student self-referral. Individual counseling is provided as needed and does not require parent consent prior to counseling. If you would like your child to opt out of individual counseling please contact the counselor.
The counseling program at Little Bennett encourages all students to achieve success through a comprehensive, developmental counseling program that focuses on academic, career and personal/social development. As advocates and leaders the counselors are committed to removing systemic barriers and promoting positive changes. Through collaboration with the school and community stakeholders, student learning will be assured. Academic excellence will be achieved by encouraging access, equity and social justice for all students.
Bullying, harassment, or intimidation are serious and will not be tolerated at Little Bennett. The Bullying Harassment or Intimidation Reporting Form can be used to report alleged bullying, harassment, or intimidation that occurred on school property; at a school-sponsored activity or event off school property; on a school bus; or on the way to and/or from school, in the current school year. If you are a student victim, the parent/guardian of a school victim, a close adult relative of a student victim, or a school staff member and wish to report an incident of alleged bullying, harassment or intimidation, please complete one of these forms below and return it to the principal. Little Bennett is committed to creating a peaceful environment at school. We encourage you to be in contact with the school if help is needed with any type of conflict situation. However, whether the reporting form is submitted or now, we will investigate any concerns that interfere with a student's learning and well-being that are brought to our attention.
