GUIDANCE

My name is Ms. Lauren Renfort and I am the School Counselor for the middle schools at Equitas Academy (#2 and #4)

EQ2 SCHOOL COUNSELOR CONNECTION

I hope this finds you well, truly.  We’ve all been through a lot and I am grateful to be a part of your experience this school year.  It will be a different year, hard at times, but also joyful!  I look forward to making the journey with you.  Please remember you’re not in this alone!  We’re here to help guide you through this time of uncertainty because we are a strong community of support.  When in doubt, reach out.  We’re here!   

See below for ways in which I am hoping to support you this year and ways in which you can reach out to me if you need some extra support:

CHECK IN WITH MS. RENFORT
Students that would like to meet with me one on one to talk can sign up for a day and time using Calendly below. I have blocked off time on Thursdays and Fridays to meet one on one with any student that feels they would benefit from that time with me.

COUNSELING CORNER
The COUNSELING CORNER is a place where you will be able to find, calming activities, socio-emotional presentations, and more. I will update the Counseling Corner throughout the year to provide new activities and resources for you.

OFFICE HOURS
I will be holding Office Hours for students two days a week per school. Mondays & Wednesdays for EQ4 and Tuesdays and Thursdays for EQ2. This will be space for students to join me if they want to talk. For links to join my office hours click here

ADVISORY and SECOND STEP

Each morning, your scholar’s homeroom teacher will be meeting with their class during ADVISORY to build community and learn more about the day before instruction begins. And one asynchronous (learn at your own pace) lesson per week will be assigned be our Conflict Resolution Specialist Ms. Testa to scholars for socio-emotional learning.

Remember: We are all in this together!

I’m so looking forward to starting this new kind of year with you!
