Classroom Lessons 
Classroom lessons taught by the counselors are presented to all students at Nottingham. The lessons cover academic, college and career readiness, and social/emotional content. The lessons are based on the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards, Virginia Standards of Learning, and Arlington County Public Schools Competencies and Indicators for the School School Counseling Program. The lessons are thirty minutes once a month (September-June). The lessons about friendship and bullying draw heavily on the Steps to Respect materials.  Most of the lessons in grades K-2 are literature based. Teachers may also request additional lessons to address specific needs unique to their class (i.e., sensitivity to students with exceptionalities).
During the 2014-15 school year the counselors taught 310 lessons from K-5.
