CCPS Guidance and Counseling Program

  • kids

    The Guidance and Counseling Program at the Cullman City Primary School focuses on all students in the areas of academic, social and emotional well being.  Here, you will be able to find information about the comprehensive Guidance and Counseling program, news about upcoming events, character education topics, and classroom guidance topics.

    I visit each classroom once a month for large group guidance lessons and I teach character education traits during the morning announcements each morning. Instructional topics and character education traits to be discussed will be listed here monthly. Please discuss them and reinforce them at home—it really makes a difference!
