Counselor’s Corner, Meet Meredith Larsen

Mrs. Meredith Larsen, our School Counselor has many roles at Arundel, including:
  • Visiting all classrooms weekly for social and emotional learning lessons. Using a curriculum called Second Step, students learn about rules for the classroom and playground, feelings and emotions, self-regulation skills, and problem solving skills.
  • Supporting students on the playground through joining-in games and conflict resolution.
  • Consulting with parents and teachers to help with social and emotional concerns.
  • Facilitating small group sessions for students on special topics such as social skills, coping skills, changing families/divorce, and grief. Parent permission and teacher approval is required for small group participation.
  • Coordinating the student Peacemakers program. Peacemakers are older students who help their peers and younger students resolve conflicts on the playground.
  • Coordinating school-wide assemblies and kindness programs.
  • Providing referrals and resources for students and families needing extra support.
 
Parents are welcome to contact Mrs. Larsen by email or through the school office.
