Our Philosophy

Elementary School Counseling services are an integral part of the total school program and complement learning in the classroom. A school guidance program reaches every student and will focus on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for successful academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. Services are child-centered, proactive, and developmental. Our professional school counselors spend their time working directly with students to maximize the benefits every student will receive from the program. This will be accomplished through the use of School Counseling Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, and System Support. School counseling services are comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, developmental in nature, and intended to enhance the potential of ALL elementary students.

Therefore, as an educational system we believe we can teach all children and all children can learn. We believe accessing knowledge, reasoning, questioning, and problem solving are the foundations for learning in an ever-changing world. We believe education enables students to recognize and strive for higher standards. Consequently, we will commit our efforts to help students acquire knowledge and attitudes considered valuable in order to develop their potential and/or their career and lifetime aspirations.

Pack the Place in Pink

Everywhere I look today, kids and adults are donned in pink! In the Heights tonite is the annual Skyview Girls' Volleyball  "Pack the Place in Pink" in support of breast cancer research. As you may know, the Skyview  coach has combated breast cancer for the past few years and has worked hard to raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause.
Beartooth Elementary, along with most of the Heights elementary schools have been selling pink t-shirts with the $ totally being donated back to research. We're hoping to beat our record from last year when we sold about a $1000 worth of t-shirts! Thanks to all of you who have purchased a t-shirt!!
