Using the three broad areas of LEARNING TO LIVE, LEARNING TO LEARN, and LEARNING TO WORK TOGETHER, the elementary counselors present lessons with the specific goals of:

  • Gaining self-awareness
  • Developing positive attitudes
  • Making healthy choices
  • Respecting others
  • Gaining responsibility
  • Developing relationship skills
  • Resolving conflicts
  • Making effective decisions
  • Setting goals
  • Learning effectively


Lessons are presented through a variety of media. Books, puppets, videos, experiential activities, and humor are the main vehicles for lesson delivery.
