Supporting Walnut Students

We believe that in addition to teaching children the rigorous academic content standards that we focus on every day, we also need to focus on helping students with their social-emotional learning.  Social Emotional Skills are crucial pre-requisites for success in life (e.g., mastery of standards of learning, positive peer relationships, and employment success).  Research indicates: “Social Emotional Learning programs improved students’ social-emotional skills, attitudes about self and others, connection to school, positive social behavior, and academic performance; they also reduced students’ conduct problems and emotional distress” (Durlak et. al., 2008). We are committed to supporting the social and emotional well-being of our Walnut student community and excited to have a full-time school counselor on-site.

Our counseling program at Walnut includes many school-wide programs and services to help support your students here at school. These include class lessons, small group and individual counseling sessions.
