School counselors at WWR strive to provide a comprehensive program designed to meet the ASCA National Model standards that supports the social/emotional, academic, and career needs of all students. School counselors promote an understanding of self and others; problem-solving and decision-making; emotional-management skills; and skills for academic learning.
Students receive counseling individually, through small groups, and in monthly classroom lessons. School counselors build partnerships with parents, teachers, administrators, school specialists, and outside agencies to help provide the best school experience possible for the student. They are committed to the school’s mission to empower all students to be respectful, responsible, confident, and compassionate leaders.
We use Core Essentials character trait curriculum to promote character education and culture change in our school. Each month, students receive a value word and the accompanying definition. Families will receive a newsletter with activities and resources used to help students accomplish their character goals and live out the value in their own lives.
You are powerful, special, and loved. And above all else, we've got you!
WWR school counselors collaborate with staff, families, and community members to cultivate a safe and nurturing environment for ALL students in order to foster social, emotional, academic, and personal growth.
To see student leaders reach their full potential and become respectful, responsible, confident, and compassionate citizens in their communities.
