The elementary years are a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept and their feelings of competence and confidence as learners. They are beginning to develop decision-making, communication, and life skills, as well as character values. It is also a time when students develop and acquire attitudes toward school, self, peers, social groups, and family. Clay Lamberton's comprehensive developmental school counseling program provides education, prevention, and intervention services, which are integrated into all aspects of children’s lives. Early identification and intervention of children’s academic and social/emotional needs are essential in removing barriers to learning and in promoting academic achievement. The knowledge, attitudes, and skills students acquire in the areas of academic, career and social development during these elementary years serve as the foundation for future success.
Clay Lamberton's counselors are integral to the total education program for elementary students. They provide proactive leadership and collaborate with teachers, students, families, and related service providers to support all students. They also coordinate positive behavioral interventions for students including mentoring partnerships, daily behavior feedback, and small groups in addition to their classroom guidance lessons that are taught weekly.
Clay Lamberton's multi-tiered systems of support is designed to help all students achieve their potential.
