Hello Westmount Families, my name is Lindsay Boucher and I am the Family School Liaison Counsellor. I have worked at Westmount since the year it opened and I have had the pleasure of seeing our students grow into the amazing people they are today!
My work at the school includes collaborating with teachers on how to support students’ mental/emotional needs in class, facilitating friendship and social skill groups, teaching various social/emotional curriculums to our elementary classes, and meeting with students individually to help them problem solve any issues they’re facing.
In an effort to provide continuous and consistent support to students and their families, I have decided to include in our regular newsletters some helpful information for parents on how you can promote positive mental health for your children; I hope you’ll take the time to read this information because we know that children that feel safe and supported both at home and at school, do better academically, socially, and emotionally.
If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact me.
