School Counseling Program Vision Statement

The vision of the school counseling program at John H. Shary Elementary School aims to support the social, emotional, behavioral, and academic development of all its students in grades PK-6. In collaboration with parents and its community our students will be supported in developing their sense of self, while learning to respect the individual rights of others who may be different. Through rigorous academic experiences, support from technological resources, and equitable access to resources, all students will develop skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century. Our students will be prepared to lead in a global economy and face the challenges of a modern world with courage and confidence.
