Welcome to the Guidance Website!
At Newington, we have a tradition of helping our Dolphins become not only strong academic students, but also positive school citizens.
Our strong character education program is taught to our students through Lifelong Guidelines, Life Skills and The Leader in Me - The 7 Habits of Happy Kids.
Each week, we highlight a Life Skill and one of The Leader in Me 7 Habits.
The mission of the Newington Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide opportunities for all students to excel personally, academically, and socially as a framework for life-long success. The program focuses on fostering leadership, basic life skills, a positive self-image, and meeting students’ psychological needs; while treating all students with respect and dignity.
Our Backpack Buddies Program serves students who are chronically hungry due to lack of resources. Please contact us if you are interested in donating money or food items for this cause. Thank you!
