Elementary School Counseling Program

The mission of the Southwest Florida Christian Academy Elementary and Middle School Guidance and Counseling program is to offer a proactive, structured program to address the spiritual, educational, career, and personal/social needs of students.  We aim to help students match their skills and abilities, interests and knowledge, values and preferences with plans that meet their educational and future goals so that students can become fully functioning, contributing members of society and truly learn to engage the culture for Christ.

 

National Water Safety Program

We are so excited that volunteers from the US Army Corps of Engineers came on November 7th, 2014 and spoke to all kindergarten through 5th grade students regarding their Water Safety Program. The presenters focused on "Know Before You Go," including learning how to swim, proper diving and boating techniques, as well as life saving maneuvers in the water. Please be sure to talk with your child today about what they learned and practice these safe water techniques at home.

Dental Hygiene

We were excited to have Mr. Shafer from Dr. Verwest's office (Pediatric Dentistry of Fort Myers) come and speak to kindergarten and first grade in October about proper dental hygiene. The students loved Dudley, the water squirting dinosaur, who helped them learn to brush properly for two minutes, twice a day. Don't forget the flossing!

Community Helper Day

As a part of our guidance program, we had variety of community helpers came to visit SFCA on Thursday, October 30th, to share with students in grades K-5 how they serve in our local community.  We had on campus the Mosquito Control helicopter and pilots, Engine and Truck from the Lee County Fire Department, and an ambulance and EMTs from Lee EMS. The students had a great time learning about the training necessary to participate in these career fields, as well as how these crucial departments serve us in Lee County. Students ended the morning watching the helicopters circle our school and depart in a wonderful sendoff.

We are so appreciative of all the people who work to keep us safe.
