Our school counselor is the coordinator for the Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance program at Odyssey Elementary. Our counselor is also the facilitator of the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support) program. This means that Odyssey counseling interventions provide a school-wide support system for each student, while also focusing on school wide positive behaviors. This intervention is provided by weekly lessons for all classes and “in the moment” learning in the PBIS room.
During the 2019-20 school year, Odyssey is in the process of refining our Tier 1 classroom management and PBIS systems. We also have a continual focus on a growth mindset. This means that we are never done learning. Every day is a learning opportunity, and Odyssey faculty and staff understand that ALL children can learn social skills and can demonstrate appropriate behaviors. This growth mindset emphasizes a safe environment where all children understand that we can learn from our mistakes, and we persevere through challenging tasks.
Our counseling team also includes our Weber Human Services therapist and our Responsive Services Counselor (Mrs. Hernandez). Parents and/or guardians can contact a member of the office staff to discuss counseling or Weber Human Services referrals.
Please contact our counselor at 801-737-8407 if you wish for your student to receive counseling or therapy services beyond what is provided in the classroom.
