Classroom Guidance Lessons

Classroom Guidance Lessons
Each classroom at Meadowview Elementary School receives a visit from the school counselor each month throughout the school year. During the school counselor's visit, students learn about the character education trait of the month.

Lessons typically involve activities, class discussions…and fun! After each lesson, students receive a letter for parents which provides ideas for reinforcing the lesson at home.
