Student Assistance Program

Life is hard. Sometimes it’s just too much. Students and their families deal with a variety of issues on a daily basis. School counselors, teachers, and parents are among the most important adults in a child’s life. Sometimes, when a child or teenager is dealing with a specific issue, it helps to have someone outside of the school that they can talk to, someone who can serve as an “unbiased party” in the eyes of a child. 

As a parent/guardian of a Fort Calhoun student, your student and your family are eligible for counseling sessions through Arbor Family Counseling. The district-funded student assistance program provides 2 free sessions. Arbor Family Counseling provides professionals seasoned at helping children and teenagers and their family members deal with pressures and issues that arise. 

Here are a few areas Arbor Family Counseling can help with:

Welcome Shadow, the Therapy Dog to FCCS

Therapy dogs are trained to work with students in schools to promote

social-emotional wellness, communication and interpersonal skills, and increase

academic motivation and performance. The part-time ESU3 mental health

therapist who serves our district, Sarah Eades Hamilton, and her four-legged

partner, Shadow the labradoodle, operate as a certified therapy dog team in the

provision of services for students. Starting in mid-September, Shadow will make

her debut and join Sarah at FCCS. Shadow’s time will be dedicated to targeted

groups of students, and these specific students’ families will be notified. There

will be a sign posted at the door to communicate when Shadow is in the building.

Parents who have any concerns with their student(s) coming into contact with

Shadow the therapy dog should contact the office.
