The Morningside Elementary School counseling program envisions a future where all of our students realize their academic, career, and life potential, always centered by the appreciation of diversity, the practice of empathy and encouragement, and the ongoing work to maintain cultural awareness of self and others.

Classroom Instruction

The Morningside Elementary School counseling program provides ALL students with school counseling services through classroom instruction lessons. The goal for the 2021-22 school year is for each class to receive 7 lessons by the end of the school year.  

Advisory Council

The American School Counselor Association defines an advisory council as a "representative group of stakeholders selected to review and advise on the implementation of the school counseling program. It is explicitly focused on the school counseling program and gives a voice to stakeholders through dialogue and critique. The council meets at least twice a year and maintains an agenda and minutes for each meeting. " --ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs, 4th Edition
