Greenways Counseling Center

The Greenways Intermediate School counseling program is a comprehensive and developmental approach. Prevention is a priority. Morning meetings, small group and individual counseling are implemented throughout the day. The counselor at Greenways works hand in hand with staff, parents, and the community to assist with student academic, emotional, and social support. 

Morning Meetings

Morning meetings use a framework of the social/emotional literacy program that Canyon ISD has adopted called Seven Mindsets.   The counselors model and work with students to incorporate good character into practical living. Trustworthiness, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Good Citizenship, School Pride, Gratitude and Courage are integrated into lessons to help students become successful citizens within the community.

Lessons applicable to the needs of students are also provided. Bullying,  Anxiety, Substance Abuse, Self-Esteem, Safety, Conflict Resolution, etc. as teachers, parents, or students themselves present concerns with the difficulty of pre-adolescence. Hope Choice is an outside resource that provides our 5th grade students with a presentation on self-care.

Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is available as needed for students who are having problems. Parents, teachers, administrators, or students themselves may request time with the counselor. The counselor may consult with the parents and teachers in area of growth, development, and learning. Resources and information can be provided to help with specific concerns. The goal of the counseling center is for it to be a safe place for students to come when they need to talk about their concerns or problems.
