I am Ms. Karen Gracey, I am the Sweetwater Schools Counselor, I can be reached from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.
The mission of the School Counseling Program at Sweetwater School is to support the school community by developing and integrating a comprehensive guidance program that will assist students in academic, career and personal/ social programs. This will allow children to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens and lifelong learners.
All children are valuable and deserve respect.
All children can be taught appropriate behaviors and can learn and grow to reach their full potential, if given the right environment.
All children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.
All students should have equal access to counseling and guidance services.
The school counselor is a resource and an advocate for all students, staff, parents and the community.
A school guidance program should be comprehensive in scope, developmental in nature and preventative in design.
A school guidance program should be intentional and include academic, career and personal/ social components.
Positive relationships between students and adults are the key to student success.
