Our Counselor


Hello SPS Family! I am Miss Chandler and I am new to the Bend area this year.  I have been loving my first year as school counselor at Seven Peaks.

A few things that I enjoy doing in my free time are: reading, hiking, video chatting with my family back in Wisconsin, and trying new restaurants. I am all about adventure, trying on new experiences, filling my house with plants and watching Hallmark movies! :) Here’s to a great year! Go Eagles!!

Monday - Thursdays: 7:30am - 3pm
Fridays: 7:30am - 1:30pm

For ParentS & StudentS 

Welcome to our Seven Peaks School's counseling page. We  recognize the paramount importance of a school counselor in navigating the complexities of today's educational landscape. Our dedicated counselor, Miss Chandler, plays a crucial role in providing comprehensive support to students across all grades.

In these challenging times, parents can expect a proactive and empathetic approach from our school counselor. Miss Chandler is committed to fostering a nurturing environment that goes beyond academic achievement. By addressing the social and emotional well-being of our students, she aims to create a foundation for lifelong success.

At Seven Peaks School, our counseling approach employs evidence-based strategies to support students in their social-emotional development. Through individual and group counseling sessions, MYP Advisory (new this year), workshops, and classroom activities, we seek to empower students with the tools they need to navigate a complex world.

How to talk to your child about:

PYP Curriculum

Cultivating Compassionate Learners: Social-Emotional Learning in the Primary Years at Seven Peaks School.

In our IB program, we recognize that education extends far beyond textbooks. For our youngest learners in the Primary Years Programme (PYP), social-emotional learning (SEL) is the heartbeat of their educational journey.

Rooted in the principles of the IB framework, our approach to SEL is about more than just academic achievement—it's about nurturing well-rounded, empathetic individuals. Through a curriculum that values emotional intelligence, cooperation, and self-awareness, we lay the foundation for a lifetime of success.

At Seven Peaks, SEL isn't a standalone concept; it's seamlessly integrated into every aspect of our PYP curriculum. From collaborative projects to daily interactions, our students learn the importance of understanding and managing their emotions, fostering positive relationships, and embracing diversity, with a global awareness.

As we guide our primary years students through this transformative journey, we're not just shaping future scholars; we're fostering compassionate global citizens who approach challenges with resilience and empathy.

MYP Curriculum

Nurturing Hearts and Minds: The Essence of Social-Emotional Learning in Middle Years at Seven Peaks School.

Drawing inspiration from Chris Balme's work, "Finding the Magic of Middle School," Seven Peaks School has woven a profound emphasis on social-emotional learning (SEL) into our Middle Years Programme (MYP) Advisory program.

Balme's insights underscore the transformative power of addressing not just academic needs but also the rich tapestry of emotions that define the middle school experience. At Seven Peaks, we believe that fostering emotional intelligence and resilience is fundamental to unlocking the full potential of our middle schoolers.

Did you know that our brains are like magical factories producing happiness? 🎉✨ Yep, it's true! Let's meet three fantastic brain buddies—Endorphins, Oxytocin, and Serotonin!

1️⃣ Endorphins: The Feel-Good Warriors!

These little champs are like your body's superheroes. When you laugh, play, or exercise, they rush in to make you feel super happy and strong. So, next time you're having a blast on the playground, thank your endorphins for the joy boost! 🏃‍♂️🤸‍♀️

2️⃣ Oxytocin: The Cuddle Hormone!

Oxytocin is like a warm hug for your brain. It's released when you snuggle your dog or cat, your favorite person, share a kind word, or even when you're feeling close to someone you care about. So, spread those good vibes and let the oxytocin flow! 🤗💕

3️⃣ Serotonin: The Mood Lifter!

Think of serotonin as your mood's best friend. When you do something positive, like helping a friend or achieving a goal, or volunteer at Street Dog Hero, serotonin steps in to make you feel proud and happy. It's like a high-five from your brain! 🙌😊

Remember, these brain buddies work together to make you feel amazing! Whether you're running, playing, laughing, or achieving something awesome, you're giving your brain the VIP treatment.
