Hi, my name is Patty Riviera and I am the school counselor at Havasupai Elementary. As the elementary school counselor, I am here to address all students' academic, career and social/emotional development needs.
For classroom based social emotional learning (SEL), the district has approved the Toolbox curriculum to help students self-regulate and use coping skills to problem solve on their own. These lessons will occur within their regular school day, in their classroom, with the support of their teacher. Please click on the tab to your right for more information about the Toolbox curriculum.
For individual counseling, students can be referred by their parent/guardian, teacher, or principal. Students are welcome to discuss what is impacting them in any way and/or barriers to their learning.
Small group counseling will be offered throughout the school year to support social-emotional learning to our students based on the need within the school or classroom. This experience will allow children to express their feelings in a comfortable setting and receive support from their peers.
To meet with students, either individually or for groups, parent permission is required. Those forms are available at the school office, or you can contact me directly.
To contact me, please call the school office at 928.505.6040. Or, if you prefer, you can email me by clicking my name (under my picture) and filling out the email form.
