Welcome to the Pine Tree Elementary School Counselor website!
Pine Tree is a Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) school where students learn both academic and important life skills to reach success in the classroom and the community. We strive to recognize and encourage the unique individual strengths of all of our students! Avon Elementary counseling programs follow the philosophy that the whole child matters, and we create an environment that guides the child to find his or her full potential.
Research shows that social and emotional learning (SEL) interventions increase students academic achievement (Indiana Department of Education). Pine Tree uses the SEL curriculum, Second Steps, school-wide and in every classroom to teach important skills for learning, managing emotions, and regulating behavior. For more information about Second Step, visit their website.
