Mission Statement

Counselors work together in partnership with the community to promote the development of each student's academic, social/emotional, and career potential. Through a comprehensive counseling program, counselors assist all students in realizing their abilities, interests, and goals as they transition through the educational process to become successful members of society and life-long learners.

 

 

Second Step

The Second Step program for Kindergarten through Grade 5 is a universal, classroom-based program designed to increase students' school success and decrease problem behaviors by promoting social-emotional competence and self-regulation.  

It teaches skills that strengthen students' ability to learn, have empathy, manage emotions, and solve problems.  The Second Step program targets key risk and protective factors linked to a range of problem behaviors.  Equipping students with Second Step skills helps a school create a safer, more respectful learning environment that promotes school success for all.
