Counselor - Mrs. Stockstad

Dear Evergreen Students and Families~

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year and the Evergreen Primary School Counseling
Page! My name is Jennifer Stockstad and this is my 15th year as a school counselor and
my 7th year as an Evergreen Eagle. I am glad you have found this page, and I hope that
I can be a resource for you in accessing school counseling services here in the
University Place School District.

School Counseling Services
The Mission of Evergreen Primary is to ensure that all students have the academic and
social foundations for future learning. The school counseling program is a foundational
piece of that mission and includes the following components:

~Advocating for children and families with a variety of needs.
~Linking families with community resources and support.
~Offering a menu of social/behavior interventions and social skills lessons to
individual students, small groups, and whole classrooms.
~Building the beginning foundations of career and college readiness skills.
~Ensuring privacy of information shared by parents and students in a safe and
confidential environment.
~Teaching specific skills to help students succeed in personal/social realm.
~Helping to resolve problems that interfere with student learning.

How do I access the School Counselor?
Things look a little differently as we are starting the year with distance learning.
I will still be available to families via phone/email and I will be working with the other
primary school counselors to provide social emotional learning, lessons and small
groups for students via our online platforms.

Family Resource Assistance
These are challenging times for us all. If you need assistance in becoming connected
with social services or community resources, please do not hesitate to reach out. We
have some resources including clothing, school supplies, food, and community
counseling). Please feel free to contact me directly at 253-566-5680 or
jstockstad@upsd83.org anytime. I look forward to working with you and your student(s)!
