    Mission Statement:

    To educate, support and advocate for all students so they are career, college and community ready.

    As a school counselors at Jeannette Myhre  Elementary School we believe:


    • *All students can achieve with proper support, care, and guidance.
    • *All students are valuable and should be treated with dignity and respect.
    • *All students should have an opportunity to learn and achieve with fair access to resources, support, and a rigorous curriculum to maximize their  full potential.
    • *All students have the right to participate in a school counseling program that is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, and  developmental in nature.
    • *All students should be provided with a school counseling program that is based on the ASCA mindsets, behaviors, and ethical standards.
    • *All students should have timely access to school counseling services provided by a licensed professional school counselor.
    • *The home, school, and community share responsibility for the education and success of students.
    • Elementary school years set the tone for developing healthy, competent and confident learners. It is also a time when students begin to develop an understanding of self and attitudes and skills for interacting with others. At Myhre, school counselors work with parents, school staff and the community to design programming that positively impacts the social/emotional, academic, and career development of all students. They provide education, prevention, and early intervention through a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program.
    • School counseling is brief in nature. The school counselor is available to address the specific concerns of students through individual counseling, group counseling, crisis intervention, and consultation with teacher, parents, and community agencies.  The school counselor is available to coordinate programming with a community agency if therapy if desired.
