Mrs. Patti Dragotto
Lakeland Elementary is committed to providing quality services to all of the students entrusted to us. All classes will receive counseling classes throughout the year on appropriate behavior, decision making and coping skills. In addition, the guidance office is available to meet the needs of individual students during the school day.
As a School Counselor, I perform the following roles in order to promote positive development in academic, career, and personal/social domains:
- Individual counseling
- Small group counseling
- Classroom guidance (i.e. Large group counseling)
- Attend and participate in academic intervention meetings
- Organize and administer building testing
- Observe students in various school environments
- Consult and collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators, social workers, and students
- Respond to school crises or emergency situations
- Provide information and resources to parents on a variety of issues
Do you have a concern about a student? Has their behavior changed unexpectedly? Does the student seem different to you? Have you become aware of a major change in that student's life that could be affecting them in school? If so, our SAP (Student Assistance Program) team is here to help. Our SAP team meets regularly and helps families connect with support systems that can help students dealing with difficult situations. SAP is 100% confidential and referrals can be made by ANYONE.
Please use our referral form and supply as much information as possible if you have a concern about a student.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT CONCERNS ABOUT THE IMMEDIATE HEALTH AND WELFARE OF A CHILD or SUSPECTED INSTANCES OF CHILD ABUSE SHOULD NOT BE REFERRED TO SAP UNTIL AFTER NOTIFYING THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES.
FOR A CHILD IN IMMEDIATE CRISIS, PLEASE DIAL 9-1-1
FOR SUSPECTED CHILD ABUSE, CONTACT CHILDLINE AT 1-800-932-0313

So, if you’re looking to improve your grammar skills – whether for school or for life – this guide is for you. In addition to resources for students (or anyone who speaks the English language), this guide includes resources for teachers. Keep reading for some 40 individual resources in six sections, including general resources, reference resources and study resources, among others.
