Vision Statement

    The vision of the Lake Stickney Elementary ESS/School Counseling Program is for every student to acquire the academic, career, and social-emotional skills to be successful students and become responsible and productive global citizens.

    Mission Statement

    The ESS/School Counseling Program at Lake Stickney Elementary provides a comprehensive and multicultural program that encourages academic, social-emotional and career development for every student. We collaborate with staff members to teach all students the skills they need to thrive in a diverse society, and we empower students to succeed by supporting their strengths and needs in a safe, caring environment. Our collaborative team of School Counselors (ESS's), staff, families, and community members work together to promote the social-emotional development of the whole child by teaching universal positive building-wide strategies (PBIS), healthy interpersonal skills, emotional regulation, bullying prevention and personal safety. Our goal is to help children develop the skills they need to work to their fullest potential and become responsible and productive global citizens.
