Our mission is to promote and offer support services to students, parents, and teachers in order that all students may reach their full academic, emotional, and social potential.
The goal of the Cumming Elementary School Counseling Program is to support and enhance student development by providing opportunities for academic, social, emotional and physical growth.We have two counselors at Cumming Elementary School. Jan Howard is the counselor for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades. Kerry Britt is the counselor for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. Mrs. Howard and Mrs. Britt provide assistance to students through counseling (individual and small group), large group guidance, consultation, and program coordination. Their main focus is to support academics, attendance, and behavior.
Classroom guidance lessons are 45 minutes in length. Guidance classes are on the “Specials Rotation” this year. As a Professional School Counselor, we adhere to the American School Counselor Association Model, called the ASCA model. This is the standard, nationwide. This model provides school counselors a framework with competencies that are highly recommended at each grade level.
