Character Counts! at Hassayampa Elementary School

Hassayampa has adopted Character Counts!, a national framework that implements character 
education to our students. The framework is based on six pillars of character: 

  • Trustworthiness
  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Fairness
  • Caring
  • Citizenship

Character education teaches these universally accepted values in order to motivate young people to incorporate them into their lives. Character education is non-partisan and non-religious.

Throughout the year, Hassayampa Elementary School will celebrate one pillar per month through morning messages, guidance lessons, and student recognition to be presented at Festival Friday and other honor events.

For more information about this program, please read the guidance and counseling program brochure or visit the Character Counts! website.

Counselor's Corner

It is privilege to have the opportunity this year to work with the students of Hassayampa Elementary as the school counselor! The guidance and counseling program at Hassayampa Elementary is designed to reach all K-5 students in order to help meet their academic, social, emotional, and physical needs. We accomplish this through classroom guidance lessons, small group activities, and individual counseling.

If you have any further questions about the guidance and counseling program, or if you’d like to refer your child, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with your child this year!
