Mission Statement and Beliefs

The mission of the School Counseling Program at Barrow Elementary is to support the school community by developing and integrating a comprehensive guidance program that will assist students in academic, career and personal/social programs and support initiatives of equity and inclusion on our campus and in our community. This will allow children to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.

I Believe:
* All children are valuable and deserve respect.
* All children can be taught appropriate behaviors and can learn and grow to reach their full potential, if given the right environment.
* All children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.
* All students should have equal access to counseling & guidance services.
* The School Counselor is a resource and an advocate for all students, staff, parents and the community.
* A School Guidance program should be comprehensive in scope, developmental in nature and preventative in design.
* A School Guidance program should be intentional and include academic, career and personal/social components.
* Positive relationships between students and adults are the key to student success.
