Welcome to a new year at Oak Elementary. I am Katrina Bradshaw, the school counselor. I work with students, parents, teachers, and administrators. I am available throughout the day to meet with students and parents. I will be meeting with students through classroom guidance, individual meetings and small group sessions. Students visit the counselor every two weeks for classroom guidance lessons. Counseling services are offered during the school day for individuals and groups of students with similar needs. Please feel free to contact me at 373-2646 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why School Counseling?
The rationale for counseling programs in schools is to be more responsive to the challenges that students, parents, teachers and the community face today and in the future. The emphasis is on reaching all students with a school counseling program that is based on a clearly designed program emphasizing standards, activities, needs assessments, program assessment and procedures.

Red Ribbon Week October 24-28, 2016
Red Ribbon Week is next week, October 24-28, 2016. Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention and awareness campaign. During Red Ribbon Week, students dress up each day to coordinate with a daily drug free theme. We have some awesome dress up days planned. The classroom with the most participation at the end of the week will win a treat. Pre-K through 2nd grade will participate in a coloring contest. The coloring pages will be given to the students by their teacher. 3rd -5th grade will participate in the poster contest. Each student will turn in a poster board no larger than 11 x 14. The theme for the poster contest is You Only Live Once (YOLO): Be Drug Free. The dress up days are listed below.
