Counseling Philosophy/Mission Statement

The mission of the Chisholm Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive school guidance program that addresses the personal/social, academic, and career development of all students. School counselors are advocates first. In cooperation with other educators, parents/guardians, and the community, school counselors facilitate the support system to ensure all students at Chisholm Elementary School have access to and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society. Through classroom guidance and individual and small group counseling, the counselor develops relationships with the students based on the following beliefs:

 

  1. Every student deserves respect and has the right to benefit from the counseling and guidance services provided.
  2. Every student has the right to participate in activities that promote self-direction and self-development.
  3.  Every student has the right to make choices and accept responsibility for those choices.
  4. Every student has the right to participate in a comprehensive school counseling and guidance program designed to assist all students in attaining their maximum potential in   academic, career, and personal/social development.
