COUNSELOR'S CORNER

 
I am Mrs. Rice, a licensed school counselor. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about your child. You many contact me at mary.rice@beavercreek.k12.oh.us or 
937-458-2544.
 
My job at Main Elementary is to help students succeed by supporting them academically, socially, with peer relationships, and during times of stress. I am always looking out for the best interest of your child, but please remember that what a student shares with me is confidential unless someone is hurting them or they are at risk of hurting themselves or others. I work with them on strategies that will help them solve their problems, find words to clarify what they need, or just listen if that is what they need.
Additionally, I always encourage students to share their concerns with their family.
 
Connection and Community
I also work a great deal on the school climate at Main Elementary. We want to provide a positive school climate that allows everyone to feel safe and valued. Our school size has changed considerably but we continue to be a big building. 
 
 I visit each classroom every month which allows me to get to know the students and for them to become comfortable with me. My classroom guidance lessons teach students how to handle conflict with others, deal with bullying behavior, improve their communication and listening skills, make good decisions, and develop lifelong relationships skills.
