Orchard View Intermediate School Counseling Program
OVI's School Counseling Program's Mission Statement
The school counseling program at OVI is based on the WV School Counseling Program, which is aligned with the American School Counselor's Association National model. Our mission is to focus on academic, career, and personal development to ensure that every student benefits from a program that is comprehensive in scope, preventative in design and developmental in nature. OVI's program is designed to show linkage with Berkeley County School's School Counseling Program's mission and with OVI's mission to provide "excellence in education for all."

February is already half over. Our character word for the month is “Honor”~~Letting someone know you see how valuable they really are. Our students read a play about Rosa Parks during our first guidance lesson, in “honor” of her contributions and in “honor” of February being Black History month. During our second guidance class we are talking about the making friends. We are reading “Making Friends Is an Art” by Julie Cook. The week of February 12-19, 2018 is Random Acts of Kindness week. Students are encouraged to commit “random acts of kindness, not just this week but every week. Kindness...pass it on.
