Counseling

Letter from our counselor

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This period of time is challenging for all of us.  I want you to know that I’m here to support you and your child.  You can contact me through my email pam.meyer@aps.edu or by letting your child’s teacher know they need extra support.  I will be getting in classes the next few weeks to talk about feelings related to the changes in our lives and talk about some ways they can cope.  I can also talk over the phone or virtually online with students when needed.  Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.  We will get through this together!

If your child is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911.

If you or a loved one is experiencing any kind of emotional crisis, mental health or substance use concern, you can find help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, by calling the New Mexico Crisis and Access Line at 1-855-NMCRISIS (1-855-662-7474) or Peer to Peer Warmline at 1-855-4NM-7100 (1-855-466-7100).  There are also resources available at nmcrisisline.com.

You can call me through google voice at 505 750-3263 during my office hours.  I might be in classes during some of this time so please leave a message.

Counselor Sunset View

Counseling Services

The counseling program at Sunset View Elementary is designed to assist all students through a comprehensive developmental guidance program, to develop each student’s academic, career, personal, and social abilities.  The foundation of the program is to provide appropriate lessons in the areas of conflict resolution, problem-solving skills, drug/alcohol education, study skills, self-esteem, responsible behavior and topics involving social skills.

Services provided:

  • Consulting with community members
  • Individual counseling sessions with students upon referral
  • Small group counseling
  • Classroom guidance lessons at teacher request

When a child is referred for counseling services, the counselor will contact the parents/guardians before counseling sessions begin. 

Meet the counselor to discuss any of the following:

  • Friendships & Relationships
  • Family changes
  • Grief issues
  • Mistreatment
  • Mediation
  • Safety concerns (for yourself or others)

The counselor also works with parents and the PTA to ensure that all students’ needs are met.  We collect school supplies, appropriate clothing, and coats for winter.  If you have any items that you would like to donate, please contact the counselor or any PTA member at Sunset View Elementary School.

Conflict Mediation Program

A Conflict Mediation program has been implemented as part of the curriculum.  Students have received instruction in dispute resolution and problem-solving skills.  Selected fourth and fifth-grade students have received special training to help mediate student disputes.

Conflict Mediation is a program designed to allow students to be trained as peer mediators to help other students find positive ways to solve conflicts.  Mediators are selected by classroom teachers in fourth through fifth grade and are seen as leaders in the school.  Students trained as Conflict Mediators are expected to learn and follow the tenets of Character Counts.
