The Canyon Intermediate School counseling program is comprehensive and developmentally appropriate for students. Prevention is a priority and supported through morning meetings, small group and individual counseling. The counselor at Canyon Intermediate works hand in hand with faculty, parents, and the community to assist with student academic, emotional, and social support.
Morning meetings use a framework of the Social/Emotional literacy curriculum called Seven Mindsets adopted by Canyon ISD. Through morning meetings, students are given an opportunity to hear stories, take part in discussions and participate in meaningful activities that will foster the Seven Mindsets. For more information about the Seven Mindsets, see the attached Parent Letter. Also during morning meetings, students are able to incorporate the CARE of Canyon Intermediate where Eagles Cooperate, Achieve, Respect, and Empower. Along with the Seven Mindsets, students have lessons on Substance Abuse, Bullying, and Social Media.
Individual counseling is available as needed for students who are having difficulty. Parents, teachers, administrators, or students themselves may request time with a counselor. Resources are made available to address specific concerns. It is our goal to provide students with a safe place to come when they need to talk or work through various issues.
