Mr. Pellicano

A comprehensive School Counseling Program is provided in the middle school grades: 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. While it is often thought that a School Counselor works only with students who are struggling, Mr. P. is available to all students and families with the goal of making daily life at Avonworth more successful for each student. Counseling efforts can be focused on three service domains: academic, career, and social-personal.

As a School Counselor, Mr. P. has broadened his focus on the developmental needs of students as they pass through each grade level. He will be seen as a guest presenter in the classrooms or as a co-presenter with the teachers. He will also prepare small group lessons for the challenges at hand and schedule time to meet with students in a one-to-one setting to discuss personal needs. Lunch bunches with friends in Mr. P.’s office are one of many weekly small groups. He also works closely with Avonworth administrators, teachers, nurses, and the Avonworth School District Student Services team to adjust the program to meet the current needs in the building. He also serves as a liaison with your child’s individual therapists and community mental health agencies.

Academic success is paramount. Learning to be accountable for daily assignments, developing successful study skills and organizational skills, and learning to work well in a small group settings are the primary focus. Personal and social needs related to grief and loss, anxiety and depression, self-esteem, and physical growth affect students and their academic growth. Mr. P. is one of many individuals who will guide your child through the challenges of being a pre-teen and teenager and offer support as each child develops and changes at their own pace.

It is our goal to have the counseling services help your child experience Avonworth Middle School as a safe and comfortable place to learn. Families and caregivers are welcome to contact Mr. Pellicano for assistance with any needs that may present themselves.
