School Counselor

Mary Krepp
Primary School Counselor

The goal of the school counseling program at Chartiers Valley Primary School is to promote the social/emotional, academic, and career growth of all students, kindergarteners through second graders.
To bring about this goal various programs and practices are in place including:

  • The Caught Being Good Program, which is a part of our School Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports Initiative
  • Classroom Lessons
  • Small groups including Yoga, Social Skills and various other groups based on need
  • New student groups and lunches to orient new students to the school
  • Study Buddies program which pairs an adult mentor with a student
  • TLCv program which gives high school students the opportunity to mentor our primary school students
  • Participation in our MTSS and CORE Team processes which help determine interventions to put in place for students who need support academically or behaviorally
  • Coordination of the implementation of school wide classroom lessons of Second Step Curriculum which focuses on social emotional learning
