Social/Emotional Support

Self-regulation: Teach your child(ren) mindfulness activities for developing the mind & body connection. Relaxation can be a great way to diffuse anger, sooth anxiety, connect with your inner self, etc.
 
Students who are experiencing difficulty at school due to social/emotional issues can benefit from a school counselor's interactions, check-ins, small group counseling, etc. Dr. Dowski is available to assist you, the parent and/or student, with any life issues that are an obstacle to learning. She will also recommend alternative resources if the need of the student and/or family is beyond the scope of a school counselor. Please call 208-615-5326 and leave a message or text a message. You may also email her at [email protected]
