The Elementary School Counselor’s role is three-fold: Counselor, Coordinator, and Consultant. The School Counselor fills a need in the elementary student’s life with help of a preventive nature.

What does the School Counselor do?

  • Works with students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community agencies

  • Works with entire classrooms, small groups, and individuals to encourage better student relationships

  • Helps identify needs of children

  • Promotes positive attitudes and choices and assists students in character development

  • Talks with parents about their child’s progress in school, abilities and limitations, growth and development, adjustment to school, and school behavior

How does a student get to see the Counselor?

  • Students may refer themselves.

  • Parents may refer their child.

  • Teachers and Administrators may refer students.

  • Counseling is a confidential service.


We love holding Student of the Month recognition. One student from each class will be chosen for their outstanding character traits per month. The following character traits will be the focus in choosing the students:

  • 1st quarter - Polite and Respectful

  • 2nd quarter - Responsible

  • 3rd quarter - Hard Worker (Perseverance)

  • 4th quarter - Stay Safe

The children selected will be recognized in the monthly assembly, have their photo placed in the Monett Times and on Monett Elementary Facebook page, as well as receiving a special certificate and reward.

It is a great deal of fun to reward the children for being a positive influence in our school. :)

Watch for the photos in the newspaper and on Facebook.
