The school counseling program is based on the American School Counseling National Model, focusing on academic, personal/social, and career development. Some main topics covered during classroom guidance include study skills, conflict resolution, manners, feelings, bullying, and career exploration. Character Counts is our school-wide focus, in which individual students are recognized for displaying such qualities as kindness, respect, responsibility, perseverance, and much more. Some special events throughout our program include Red Ribbon Week, Careers on Wheels for K-2 students, and a career fair for sixth-grade students.
