Hello, Indians!

Welcome to the page of Mrs. Karla Denning,

School Counselor!

 Feel free to reach out as needed, and I will be back in touch as soon as I am available. You may reach me by calling the school at (919)894-4226 X3407 or emailing to karladenning@johnston.k12.nc.us.  

 Visit the "Meadow School Counseling" Twitter page (@MeadowCounsel) for resources, updates, and information!

 Mrs. Denning is in her 24th year in education!  This is her 19th year as the school counselor at Meadow School!  She also has experience as an elementary and middle school teacher and a high school counselor.  

 I am so glad that you are part of our Meadow Indian family!

 It is my pleasure to serve you and your family in the following ways: 

As your school counselor, I will be conducting whole group classroom guidance lessons for Grades K-5. We will explore such areas as:  growth mindset, getting along with others/cooperation, friendship/anti-bullying, responsibility, respect, diversity, study skills, test-taking strategies, etc.

 Other services include meeting with some students on a one-on-one basis to provide short-term individual counseling.  Students may refer themselves for counseling, or they may be referred by a teacher, administrator, or other staff member. You may click on the link below to access the counseling referral forms.

I also serve as our school's coordinator for 504 Plans, Homebound Services, Backpack Buddies, the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP), Red Ribbon Week, Great Kindness Challenge Week, and Character Recognition. 

Again this school year, I will be collecting Box Tops for Education.  We will earn 10 cent for each Box Top submitted.  Money earned will be used to support the Guidance program in a variety of ways (character recognition prizes, Red Ribbon Week materials, classroom guidance materials, etc.).  Thanks in advance for your support! **We have transitioned to the digital submission of Box Tops.  To get started, download the Box Tops for Education app today!

I am here to help ALL students meet their full potential in the areas of academics, career and college readiness, and social/emotional health.

 Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have. I am here to help!

You may call me at 894-4226 or e-mail me at karladenning@johnston.k12.nc.us.
