Elementary Counselors believe:

•  Children have dignity and worth as human beings.

•  Children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their

    relationships with others.

•  Children who understand their feelings are better able to control their


•  Children are capable for making responsible choices.

•  Children form attitudes during elementary school that shape future

    attitudes toward learning, self, and society.

•  Children are resilient and given support, can successfully cope

    with challenges they face.


Considering the above beliefs, ALL children have elementary counseling
services available to them - not just those in a crisis situation.
