    I'm Mrs. Mecca, School Counselor for Grades: 7, 8, and 9. 

    My role of a School Counselor is very complex, as I work with students, their parents/guardians, teachers and faculty, outside agencies, and other facilities, businesses, etc.

    Some things that I do in Guidance:

    *Work individually with students, listen to their concerns, and assist with problem solving and making good decisions.

    *Have contact with parents/guardians regarding school, personal, or family issues; grades/academic progress, etc.

    *Classroom visits for career exploration, scheduling, providing special information, etc.

    *Coordinate standardized testing such as PSSA's, Keystone Exams, Algebra Prognosis Test.

    *New student orientation.

    *Special projects and field trips such as: 9th gr visit to Wilkes-Barre CTC

    *Member of Riverside's SAP Team. Our SAP (Student Assistance Program) is an in-house process which assists student's who may be having school, home, or social difficulties to receive help for their issues/problems such as: drug or alcohol use, anger issues, severe problems with peers and/or adults, feelings of depression, anxiety, etc. A SAP referral can be made on Riverside's Counseling page, in-person, or via handwritten note which can be placed in the box located in school nurses office.
