Meet Our Student Services Team!

At Northside Elementary and Coulee Montessori Schools we have a great
team of staff members here to assist our students and families.

Student Services helps students to do their best in school by providing Social Emotional Learning to the entire school community, students and families. Members of the student services team advise the entire school on consistent rules and language, they support families with parenting tips, teach in every classroom and also help small groups and individuals learn social skills.

Student Services members focus on helping all students understand themselves and others, learn how to make safe decisions and deal with conflict. They teach about being a responsible person, how to stay safe, learning about diversity of peoples, as well as how to cope with loss and change. They help children look at their personal qualities, to imagine and plan for their future.

Student Services functions as a link between school and community and help families access basic needs: food, clothing, shelter, health care, transportation and financial needs.

The Student Services team works together with the entire staff to care for the whole child.
