Welcome to the School Counseling Department 

     This year we are happy to have three school counselors working with our eagles!  
    Mrs. Terry will be here every day and conducts lessons with students in Kindergarten, First Grade (Scott, Martin & Luxton), Fourth Grade & Fifth Grade.  She is available to meet with all students on days when our other team members are not in the building.  
    Mrs. Miller is returning to Little River this year.  She is primarily working with students in First (Jones & VanWagoner),  Second Grade & Third Grade this year.  She will be at the River on Thursdays & Fridays.  We will be sharing Mrs. Miller with Buffalo Trail.  
    This year, Mrs. Middlebrooks will also be helping us during the first semester.  She is currently a graduate student from Liberty University and will be at Little River Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Please welcome her to LRES!
    All counselors are available to assist  our families at Little River.  Please let us know if you need any help throughout the school year!    
    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 703-957-4360 or send us an email.
