Counseling Philosophy

Bixby offers a proactive and comprehensive counseling program which focuses on Great Expectations for all students. The role of the school counselor involves: leading classroom guidance lessons on such topics as bullying, character education and safe and healthy schools.

The guidance and counseling program at North Elementary provides a quality educational opportunity for all students while following the principles of Great Expectations.

The Eight Expectations for Living:

  • We will value one another as unique and special individuals.
  • We will not laugh at or make fun of a person's mistakes nor use sarcasm or putdowns.
  • We will use good manners.
  • We will cheer each others success.
  • We will help one another whenever possible.
  • We will recognize every effort and applaud it.
  • We will encourage each other to do our best.
  • We will practice virtuous living using the Life Principles.

Self-Care Tip: Ge Grateful
February is the perfect month to start a gratitude journal. How is that self-care? Surveys have shown that grateful people experience fewer aches and pains and they report feeling healthier than other people.

Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you. Princess Diana
