J. W. Arnold Elementary School Counseling Department

Mission Statement

  The mission of J.W. Arnold’s Elementary School Counseling Program is to support students as "lifelong" learners so they can achieve their full potential. Promoting high standards and incorporating high expectations to assist in the developmental needs of our students. As a school counselor I will provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program that will address academic, career, and personal/social needs of all students. The Guidance Department will foster a positive, supportive, and culturally based program to ensure the school community is a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for all students at J.W. Arnold Elementary School. I will work as a part of the professional school team to address the academic, personal/social career, and developmental needs of all of our students. I will follow the American School Counselor's Association's for recommendations for the role of a professional school counselor. I will provide a safe, supportive, and growth-promoting environment for all students. I will involve families and community stakeholders in the school counseling program. I will teach skills such as anger management, mediation, conflict resolution, goal setting, active listening, and career/postsecondary skills. I will serve as a resource in referring families to other helping professionals and outside support agencies. I look forward to working with you all this school year
