The goal of the Hawbridge School Counselor is to engage students in the process of creating positive social relationships with their peers, becoming active leaders in their community, challenging themselves academically, and preparing for their futures beyond Hawbridge.

In addition to providing responsive counseling to all students, Ms. Martin provides weekly classroom guidance lessons to 5th graders.  Over the course of the year, she will cover topics such as conflict resolution, career exploration, multicultural sensitivity, and academic fluency (study skills, understanding GPA, course requirements, etc).

Also look out for the annual Family College Night, Financial Aid Night, Career Day, College Q and A Sessions, college tours, and visits from admissions representatives from different colleges and universities.  The best way to stay informed about upcoming events is by following the Hawbridge Twitter.
