The Counseling/Mental Health Department at Crosspointe Elementary is to increase equity and create opportunities for all students to succeed through individual, small and whole group counseling services by using empirically supported academic and social-emotional explicit instructions inspiring students to become life-long learners. The department collaborates, with staff, parents, families, caretakers, school parent-liaison, business partners and members of the community to engage all students in developmentally appropriate preventive responsive (SEL) and counseling/mental health services resulting in academic performance, social/emotional competence, and college/career readiness growth.
What do we do:
School Counselors/Mental Health are professionally trained in mental health with a focus on working with students in the school setting. The primary goal is to provide services to students that will allow them to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally within the school setting by reducing the issues that may be preventing them from learning.
Vision Statement: The vision of the counseling Program at Crosspointe is for students to depart the school with the necessary tools needed to achieve academic, personal/social, and college/career success in Elementary, Middle, High school, and beyond, and to enter the next phase of their education as responsible, respectful, and socially and emotionally competent individuals.
The goal of play therapy is to help children learn to express themselves in healthier ways, become more respectful and empathetic, and discover new and more positive ways to solve problems. We are thankful to Dr.Mindy for donating Crosspointe a play therapy.
