The school counselor visits classrooms periodically to meet all of the learners and teach skills to help them grow in the areas recommended by the American School Counselors Association: academics, social-personal, career awareness, as well as many of the state's academic and interpersonal standards. Part of the curriculum includes "The Green Circle", which supports the district's anti-bullying efforts.
This program focuses on pro-social skills and diversity awareness, presented in 3 lessons. The main goals are: bully prevention, peaceful problem solving, and creating a positive learning environment for all students.
"Green Circle" is about "Growing our World of People" by showing "Caring, Sharing, & Respect" and recognizes the fact that humans come in different shapes, sizes, colors, abilities, and ethnic backgrounds and that each person chooses his/her circle of friends.
These concepts begin in our elementary schools and continue in varying formats throughout the upper grades. The concepts are referred to during the year, to promote a safe, encouraging school climate. Key vocabulary is: "Caring, Sharing, Respect", Include, Exclude, Feelings, Friends, Family, Words, Actions, Choices, Mutual Respect, Alike, Different.
