Student Support Services

Counseling Services

The counselor helps students deal with various issues affecting their lives and academic progress. Counselors provide classroom lessons on topics such as feelings identification, community building, anti-bullying, conflict management, friendship and career and college exploration. The counselor consults with parents, teachers and outside agencies to help the student and family.

The counselor offers small group and individual counseling. Some of the topics may focus on making good decisions, getting along with peers and school staff, study skills, self control, handling frustration and coping with anxiety. Support groups focus on family changes, incarceration, or the illness or death of a loved one.

The counselor provides responsive services, responding to students' immediate needs through one-on-one counseling or peer mediation.

The counselor is available to help your child have a productive and successful year at Maxfield Elementary.

Contact Ms. Kary at kary.kuenzli@spps.org or call 651-744-7644.

Health Office

A certified Nurse staffs the Maxfield Elementary School health office. When they are not in the building, teachers and office staff manage health issues. If your child has a chronic health problem (such as a heart condition, asthma or allergies), please contact the nurse early in the year so that this information is recorded on your child's health record and procedures for managing this condition can be used in working with your child. It is also important to notify the school of any contagious conditions your child may contract, such as strep throat, head lice or scabies. In this way, the nurse will be able to take appropriate measures to protect other students. Where public health is concerned, your cooperation is essential.
