Guidance – – CHP is committed to developing social skills and a positive attitude. The Guidance Counselor meets with students from Preschool through Grade 8 to help them transition into school routines. Older children meet in smaller “Lunch Bunch” groups to discuss specific issues of concern. By Middle School, students feel comfortable enough that they reach out to the Guidance Counselor on an as needed basis. At all levels, students are given strategies about how to interact with other students, to recognize and deal with conflict in a healthy manner.
