Campus Needs and Guidance



Throughout the school year, the school counselors will visit classrooms for guidance lessons. We will employ a variety of counseling strategies to meet the diverse needs of our student population. Guidance lessons are based on both the beginning-of-the-year staff/parent/student needs assessment surveys as well as the Campus Improvement Plan.


A monthly calendar will be developed to address campus needs.


The areas of guidance to include:

  • Self-confidence Development 
  • Motivation to Achieve 
  • Decision-Making, Goal-Setting, Planning, and Problem-Solving Skills 
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness 
  • Communication Skills 
  • Cross-cultural Effectiveness 
  • Responsible Behavior 

Lessons are tailored to specific grade level needs to insure appropriateness. Throughout the year, students are provided with information on drug & alcohol awareness, dangers of social media, bullying, body image concerns, managing and coping with their emotions, communicating effectively and making good academic, social, emotional & personal choices.


Randolph Elementary School is a Leader in Me Campus; therefore, Counselors will incorporate the  7-Habits of Highly Effective Students to guide guidance lessons.


The 7 Habits are:


  • Habit 1: Be Proactive
  • Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
  • Habit 3: Put First Things First
  • Habit 4: Think Win-Win
  • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood  
  • Habit 6: Synergize
  • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
