Counselor's Corner

Message from the Counselor:                                                      August 2019

 

I would like to take this time to inform you about my responsibilities as your student's school counselor.  My name is Julie New and I am the elementary and middle school counselor at Holliday ISD.  Some of the counseling services that I will provide this year include the following:

 

  • Teach classroom character education lessons
  • Counsel individual students as needed and maintain confidentiality
    • Referrals to the counselor can be made by students, teachers, or parents. Parents can make a request by email, phone call, or by using the “Parent Referral” link found on the Counselor’s Corner of the Elementary and Middle School webpages.
  • Counsel with small groups of students with similar concerns
  • Consult with teachers in meeting individual student needs
  • Coordinate state testing programs & grade level achievement tests
  • Coordinate and develop parent involvement activities

 

Individual and small group counseling will be done as needed, but if more extensive time in counseling is considered necessary, I will contact you for your permission.  If you have any questions or concerns or feel there is a need for counseling on a regular basis, please contact me at 586-9201 or julie.new@hollidayisd.net.  I am looking forward to a great school year.

 

Sincerely,

Julie New
