Classroom Guidance

Classroom Guidance

Each month, we visit classrooms in all grades.  In grades 4K, K, and 1, we have lessons once a month that last about 30 minutes.  In grades 2-5 our lessons last 45 minutes, and are taught at least once a month. There will be some months when we are able to do more than one lesson.   All lessons are based on the ASCA (American School Counselors' Association) standards.  The lessons focus on what students should know, understand, and be able to do in 3 areas: academic, college and career readiness, and social/emotional. We also incorporate the 7 Habits of Happy Kids- The Leader in Me and leadership skills into these lessons, as appropriate. Students are encouraged to listen and actively participate in each lesson in order to apply these individual lessons and skills to their everyday lives.
