Mrs. Cummings and Mr. Penny would like to welcome all students and their families to the Fowler community! This 2017-2018 school year we had some changes and now Mr. Penny is the counselor for students with last names A-L, and Mrs. Cummings for students M-Z. Mrs. Graves is the Registrar/Counseling Secretary.
A little about what we do….
Today’s school counselors are immersed in a variety of ways to help all students succeed. At Fowler we strive to become partners with students, teachers, parents/guardians, administrators, and the community to provide a comprehensive counseling program. We work to address three specific areas:
Personal and Social Development – we help students learn to understand themselves as members of a community, interact with others in a respectful way, and apply personal safety skills.
Academic Development – we help students develop the attitude, knowledge, and skills that will contribute to effective learning; help students prepare academically for a variety of post-secondary options; and highlight the relationship of academics to the world of work and to life at home and in the community.
Career Development – We help students learn about the work world so they can obtain information about careers, make goals related to achieve career goals, and develop skills for job success.
At Fowler, some of the activities we help coordinate include:
Peer Mediation, Conference and College visits, Anti-Bullying Classroom Lessons, Forecasting, 8th Grade Career Day, Intercambio, Check-in/Check-outs, Transitions, Bullying reporting, Scheduling, among others.
Why might I want to contact my student’s school counselor?
You can contact us for a variety of reasons: Academic progress concerns, schedule questions, clothing/food resource referrals, community counseling resources, developmental concerns, peer relationships, family dynamic changes, health concerns, and for many other resources. If you don’t know whom to contact at Fowler, your school counselor is a good start.
