About Bristow Run's School Counseling Department:

Our school counseling department is an award winning program that delivers a comprehensive, developmental program that is aligned with the American School Counseling Association National Model ® and is organized to ensure accountability. Our counselors are educators who are specially trained in childhood development and collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff to help ensure success for every student. Programs are analyzed for effectiveness and decisions are made on how best to provide students with knowledge and skills in the areas of academic, career and social/emotional development.  We teach lessons, offer small groups, and provide individual counseling.  

At Bristow Run, the school counseling program is an integral component of the academic mission of the school. We work hard to build relationships with students and families to help all students succeed.

The counselors are also the sponsors for the following programs: 
Ambassadors (students welcome new students to our school)
Safety Patrols (5th grade students) 
Student Mentoring Programs (5th Grade)
School Helpers (5th Grade)
Musical about diversity in Kindergarten ("Crayons United") and Careers in second grade ("The Hat in Me")
Teaching Pioneers collaboration with Patriot HS (student volunteers from Patriot HS help some of our teachers)
