On the Right Path

Each month on classroom visits I will be talking with the students about one character trait. The focus on character traits will encourage respect and appreciation for individual differences. Learning about character traits also helps to create responsible students who will become productive members of the community and the broader society.

Character Trait for the month:  Responsibility


Responsibility means doing what you are supposed to do, always doing your best, using self control and being self disciplined. Responsibility is accepting the results of your own actions, so decide for your actions to be positive ones. Act in a way that lifts up both others and you. The responsible person does his or her best on any task even homework. The responsible person completes the whole job, not part of it. Follow school and home rules quietly and responsibly. By following rules quietly and responsibly, these rules become life habits.

Guidance Helps Students Grow to "Bear" Their Best

The guidance counselor is an important part your child’s growth and development.  I am here to support parents, teachers, and students.  Guidance services are available to all parent(s)/guardian(s) and their children. Guidance services include:

  • Classroom Guidance
The guidance counselor works with students in the classroom teaching guidance lessons on different character traits.
  • Group Counseling
The guidance counselor works with students in small groups counseling children with similar concerns.
  • Individual Counseling
The guidance counselor works with students individually counseling as needed and maintains confidentiality.
  • Consultation Services
The guidance counselor and teachers work together to help children.  The guidance counselor consults with teachers and assists them in meeting individual students concerns.  The guidance counselor works with parents to help their children sail toward success.
  • Referral Services

The guidance counselor along with the administration at BSE are asking parents to help us to shape literate, responsible students who will become productive members of the community and the broader society.
