Armstrong School Counseling Mission Statement
The Armstrong Elementary School Counseling Program will work to meet the needs of all individual students through quality instruction to pursue academic and artistic excellence by focusing on the student’s social, emotional, career needs and well-being. As a school counselor, I will strive to ensure a safe, effective, and responsive learning environment to address the needs of all students.
Armstrong Vision Statement
Within this department we are to act as student advocates, and partners in their academic, social, and emotional progress. We will collaborate to foster development of positive relationships with parents, students, staff, stakeholders, and community members.
Armstrong School for the Arts celebrated Red Ribbon Week 2018 with related guidance lessons, a community art project, and spirit days. The theme was, "Our Future is Key so We're Staying Drug Free."
We're happy to partner with Hampton University's G.I.R.L.S. group to provide mentorship and curriculum extension activities for our students. The program allows our students to learn more about their post-secondary educational options as well as foster a sense of community and experience for our students.
Through the Hampton Education Foundation, Armstrong implemented the Kelso's Choices Conflict Resolution program grades K-5! Students are encouraged to use personal conflict-resolution skills to handle small problems, while their encouraged to tell an adult about big problems!
