Counseling Office

SE Counseling and Guidance

Ms. Young and Mrs. Berkinshaw

Extension 5812

Confidentiality is paramount to counseling. We always assure the child and parent
that what is said in our office stays in our office and will not be shared without
permission. The only times we would have to break confidentiality is if a person
were threatening to hurt themselves or others, of if the law was being broken.
We take confidentiality seriously and am always respectful of the people with whom
we counsel.

Social Skills
Jenks Public Schools uses a process to achieve specific learning goals, and that
program is called TRIBES. We build our learning with four agreements:

    * Attentive Listening
    * Appreciations/No Put downs
    * Mutual Respect
    * The right to pass

We often use Community Circles to practice these agreements.  The use of Community Circle is to initiate inclusion, respect and diversity. It helps to build a sense of community by fostering inclusion through appreciation, apologies, and sharing feelings. Students are taught to express themselves thoughtfully and to let others know if their feelings have been hurt.
