Elder Grove has 2 school counselors;  Kenna McCauley & Lexie Rice. Miss McCauley is a full time staff member and works with grades K-5th.  Mrs. Rice is now full time and works with students in grades 6th-8th.  School counseling services are provided in three general ways: 


  • individual counseling 
  • small group counseling 
  • whole class lessons

The counselors collaborate with staff and parents to best serve the needs of our students. The school counselors are available to assist students with a wide range of personal concerns, including areas such as social, family, or emotional issues, as well as, academic skill development. 


The counselor may also make available information about community resources to address these concerns more in depth than the school setting will allow.
