School Counseling

MISSION

The mission of Crestwood Elementary School Counseling Program is to work in partnership with students, families, and the community to ensure that each student
acquires the knowledge, skills, and core values necessary to achieve personal success and to enrich the community. Students will be able to identify barriers to success, and have the ability to appropriately ask for help and to address their own issues. Furthermore, students will gain the tools necessary to transition smoothly into Middle School, and to eventually blossom into actualized world citizens.
