Kamiloiki School Counseling Program

 

School counselors address the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. We provide support to help nurture student potential and academic success. We help to develop and maintain a safe and caring learning environment, where all students can and want to learn.

Please contact us at 397-5800, or visit us in the main office, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your child. 

 

Who Can See the Counselor?
The counselor's door is always open to support the needs of all students at Kamiloiki Elementary. Counselors meet weekly with students for group and individual sessions to provide students with guidance on issues impeding learning or emotional/social development, such as: 

-Peer relationships
-Social skills
-Family transitions i.e. Deployment, divorces, death/illness
-Anger management
-Self-esteem

We are also always available for drop-in counseling as issues or needs arise.
