Elementary Counseling

The goal of the Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide services and activities which meet the unique needs of the child. Our focus is on the educational, emotional, and social development of these children relative to their school experiences and in hope of their academic success.  
In working with and supporting all of the students in our school, we strive to address the challenges they face in a pro-active manner through classroom lessons on such topics as relational aggression (bullying), study skills, conflict resolution and career activities, as well as coordinating our building-wide Advisory Program. Additionally, trained professionals and guest speakers are invited into school to present on these topics in either the classroom setting or to the larger group.
Individual counseling is similarly an important facet of the counseling program, addressing such issues as academic performance, family difficulties, and social issues (including conflict mediation). Students are referred to the counseling office by parents, teachers, administrators, and by the students themselves. Depending on the need, a referral to additional resources may be made.  
The Elementary School Counseling Program is an integral part of our school environment. The better students feel about themselves and the world around them the more they are able to achieve and become the most successful and productive adults that they are capable of becoming.

Career Cafe

South Side Area School District is focusing on career growth and development from grades K-12. This goal aligns with Pennsylvania’s Academic Standards for Career Education and Work, which are specifically set for grades 3,4,8, and 11. One important component of this initiative is the continuation of South Side Elementary's ‘Career Café Program. Students have the opportunity to listen to parent and community speakers who work in several different career fields. Each month we are going to be focusing on 2 specific career ‘clusters.’ The career clusters represented are the nationally set grouping of occupations and industries based on the knowledge and skills they require.
