Guidance Program and Services

Hello! I am the School Advisor at Flaherty Elementary School.  




Schoolwide Guidance Program:

Every student at Flaherty Elementary attends a guidance class with his/her homeroom. This class is forty-five minutes long and includes direct instruction, pair-sharing, small group activities, and role playing. 

Our school's guidance curriculum is based on the Second Step program by the Committee for Children.  This research-based program is designed to increase students' school success and decrease problem behaviors by promoting social-emotional competence and self-regulation. It teaches skills that strengthen students' ability to learn, have empathy, manage emotions, and solve problems.
