Sarah Adkins ~ Guidance Counselor
Welcome to Waynesburg Elementary School! My name is Sarah Adkins, and I am the guidance counselor in your child’s school. It is my responsibility to help your child get the best possible education. A good education not only includes learning to read, write, and do math, but also includes learning appropriate social skills. This means, among other things, learning how to get along with other children, making good decisions, controlling anger, accepting responsibility and being aware of strengths and weaknesses. Many of these skills are taught at home. It is my intent to supplement the learning from home through independent, small group and classroom guidance.
I am also in the building to help students who are facing particular difficulties. Family disruptions such as an illness, death or divorce may affect children at school. If your family is experiencing anything out of the ordinary, please let me know. If I am aware of any special circumstances your child might be facing, I can observe your child and help both your child and you with difficulties that might surface.
It is important to remember that when school personnel and parents work together, it is a winning combination for children. All children deserve to be winners, and together, we can help this goal to be realized.
If I can be of any help to you please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 379-6418 Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday, between the hours of 8:00-3:30. If I am not available I will return your call as soon as possible.
