We want every child in Mariemont City Schools to succeed academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally. To make this goal a reality, we strive to ensure that a variety of services and support are available to all of our district students and families.
Earlier this year, we partnered with Child Focus, Inc. to offer additional services for all of our students. Our school counseling program is an integral component of our schools, as it helps students be emotionally healthy and ready to learn. And as mental health needs arise, so does the need for more acute care, which is why we recently expanded our mental health services. Both of the licensed therapists serving our district collaborate with educators, parents and the school psychology staff to create safe, healthy and supportive environments that strengthen the connections between home, school and the community. Nicole Woolery works with students in grades 7-12, and Kelly Lean works with students in grades K-6. For more information about these services, contact Tricia Buchert, director of student services, at 513-272-7519.
It’s important for our students to feel like they have the tools and support they need to cope, grow and succeed. And just as important is that our parents have the tools and support they need to help their children reach their fullest potential.
On Wednesday, March 2 the Warrior Coalition will present “Surviving the Teens: Unrecognized Signs of Depression.” All district parents are welcome to attend this presentation, hosted by Cathy Strunk, MSN, RN from Cincinnati Children’s Division of Psychiatry, from 7-8:30pm in the Mariemont Elementary auditorium. Parents will receive information, resources and support to help guide their children through the ups and downs they may face. I encourage everyone to attend this free event.
The health and safety of every student is a priority for us at Mariemont City Schools. Teaching our children healthy life and learning habits and that it’s OK to ask for help is just another way we are guiding them to become better Leaders of Tomorrow.
