This year we are happy to have two school counselors working with our eagles. Mrs. Terry will be here every day and Ms. Nawojchik will be here on Wednesday afternoons and all day Thursday and Friday. We are sharing Ms. Nawojchik with Cardinal Ridge Elementary. Both counselors are available to assist all of our families at Little River. Please let us know if you need any assistance!
School counselors provide individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom guidance lessons. Counselors focus on academic, career, and personal/social concerns. In addition, counselors are available to consult with parents on an as-needed basis.
Individual counseling is available for students with a variety of concerns including, but not limited to: anger, anxiety, death, friendship troubles, bullying, work habits, deployment, divorce/changing families, or any other issues that make it difficult to focus on school success. If more than one student faces the same struggle, small group counseling is available. Typically groups are held during lunch to avoid a conflict with classroom instruction. Every student is provided classroom guidance lessons on a bi-weekly basis.
Parents, to meet with a counselor please call 703-957-4362 or email:
