COUNSELOR'S CORNER

Excited to join the HK8 family

Dear Parents & Students,

My name is Jon Siegel, I am a professional counselor new to the Hotchkiss K-8 family and community. Approaching this new 2018-19 academic school year, I am excited to be here to support the various, social, emotional & academic needs of all our HK8 students.

Moving ahead this school year, there are multiple areas of focus for both our elementary and secondary aged students. One of the primary areas of focus this school year is assuring all students have the social-emotional tools to foster a healthy productive learning environment. Some classroom based curriculum may include self-care, wellness, conflict resolution, stress management, grief/loss supports, and responsibility-accountability.

For our middle-secondary (6th-8th grade) students, there will be an ongoing focus on career and college explorations, which include Individual Career & Academic Planning (ICAP) indicators. ICAP’s are developed via a web-based platform utilized by students to further explore academic and/or career endeavors. In addition, many students will have the opportunity to attend local career fairs, which highlight various vocational pursuits.

I look forward to serving and supporting the Hotchkiss K-8 students by fostering individual student empowerment, and self-worth via ongoing counseling supports & psycho-educational tools.

Regards,

Jon D. Siegel, M.A.
