ONATE SCHOOL COUNSELING MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the School Counseling Program at Onate Elementary is to provide a comprehensive program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.  The role of the school counselor is also to be an advocate for all students by enhancing the overall school climate through the facilitation of a character-driven, collaborative environment in which effective learning can take place. This advocacy will enhance academic achievement and student potential.

The school counselor will work in partnership with other educators, parents/guardians, and community contacts to support students.  This partnership will help ensure that all students at Onate Elementary have the opportunities they need to acquire the knowledge and skills to meet their highest potential, become lifelong learners, and responsible, contributing citizens in our society.

CONFLICT VS. BULLYING

Conflict 101  

  • A conflict is more than just a disagreement. It is a situation in which one or both parties perceive a threat (whether or not the threat is real).
  • Conflicts continue to fester when ignored. Because conflicts involve perceived threats to our well-being and survival, they stay with us until we face and resolve them.
  • We respond to conflicts based on our perceptions of the situation, not necessarily to an objective review of the facts. Our perceptions are influenced by our life experiences, culture, values, and beliefs.
  • Conflicts trigger strong emotions. If you aren’t comfortable with your emotions or able to manage them in times of stress, you won’t be able to resolve conflict successfully.
  • Conflicts are an opportunity for growth. When you’re able to resolve conflict in a relationship, it builds trust. You can feel secure knowing your relationship can survive challenges and disagreements.
