• Welcome to Mr. Hawk's Counseling Page For Ideas and Resources!

  • Hello, I am the new school counselor at Samish Elementary. My name is Erik Haakenson and I go by "Mr. Hawk" on campus. I'm excited to get to know the families that make Samish a wonderful place to learn and work.

    Right now, there are big things happening in our community, country, and world. In these pages, you will find resources, information, and support to help families meet their basic needs, talk about important topics like race relations and COVID, and help child(ren) succeed. Young people look to the adults in their lives to model how to deal with uncertainty and anxiety. You can help your young people by limiting exposure to frightening media, helping them to understand and process what's going on in the world, and practicing healthy coping skills together. As parents and guardians, the example you set and the care you give mean so much! I want to help you to help them.

    I can help you with concerns about your student and with accessing community resources your family needs.

    During remote learning, I can most easily be reached by email: ehaakenson@swsd101.org

    My schedule at Samish is Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and sometimes Tuesdays.
