Vision and Mission Statement
The counseling office at Eagle School Intermediate concurs with the vision of Eagle School: to provide and excellent educational experience for all of our students. The counselors play a key role in creating a safe and respectful environment so students can have the best educational experience possible.
The mission of the Eagle School counseling office is to promote the County and Eagle School's mission of "AIR High Five." Through individual and group counseling, class lessons, school wide prevention programs, collaborating and consulting with other educators and community resources, the counselor reinforces:
A=Accountability, we are accountable for helping to create a respectful learning environment.
I=Integrity, we are show integrity to students, staff and families by modeling the behaviors we expect and with follow through on supports needed.
R=Respect, it's everything that we teach and model to our students!
We further help with this by being in line with our school's mission of "high five"
F=Feeling Safe, we believe this is key to all students being able to learn and achieve.
I=Inspired to Learn, we help students connect what they are doing today to their goals for the future.
V=Valued as a Person, we model this through counseling and reinforce in our classroom lessons that everyone is a valuable member of this school community.
E=Excellence in All We Do, we model as well as encourage our students to give their best each day.

Schools throughout the nation recognize the last week of October as Red Ribbon Week to promote a safe and healthy drug free lifestyle. With the growing concerns regarding drug abuse in Berkeley County, Eagle School recognizes the importance of this message.
This year we will kick the week off a little early with a performance from the Isaac Joseph Band who will focus and inspire us to make positive choices and follow our 7 Habits of Happy Kids.
During the week students will be given red ribbons to wear. The ribbons will serve as a reminder of the importance of their choices. They will also focus on healthy choices during their Olweus meetings this week.
Helping students make healthy choices is not a one-time conversation or event. It truly is a team effort with all caring adults in their life to continue to have these discussions as they are growing older. Children of parents who talk to them about drugs are 42% less likely to use drugs than those who don't. If you would like help or resources to talk with your child feel free to contact Eagle School counselors.
