Elementary Guidance

  • The Guidance Department Mission is to assist students in maximizing their potential. Each counselor is specially trained to assist students with his/her individual social and emotional development. It is the aim of each counselor to help each student make the most of the opportunities they are given and to know him/herself better.

    Below are highlights of a few of the things we do:

    • Work with individual students and small groups
    • Help to identify social, emotional and academic needs of students
    • Encourage better interpersonal relationships between students, teachers, and parents
    • Promote positive attitudes and choices
    • Support teachers and parents in helping students succeed
    • Create a link among families and community resources
    • Provide students with problem solving skills and strategies
    • Develop and implement programs to encourage excellent character traits, social skills, and foster effective coping mechanisms
