We believe all students can learn, and deserve to come to school ready and able to learn without limitations.
We believe all students deserve to feel safe, wanted, heard, and valued at school.
We believe learning should adapt to the students' needs and our program should be equitable and valuable to all students.
We are a unified team (with faculty, administrators, community members, and parents) of support for our students.

The students of BGR1 will become productive citizens who exhibit empathy and possess self-worth. As confident individuals, they will strive to be continuously resilient and knowledgeable in an ever changing global society.

The school counseling program, aided by a caring school community, will provide a safe learning environment that is equitable and accessible, for the success of every student. Our program provides social/emotional, academic and career development to aid in a lifetime of individual success in all aspects of students’ lives.  

Mrs. Robbins and Mrs. Lilley go in Kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms weekly and 2nd- 5th bi-weekly. Throughout the school year we focus on academic success, social/ emotional skills, and careers. We also have group counseling for students in need of a small group setting to focus on social emotional or academic growth. Individual counseling is available too for up to 6 sessions with parent permission.

Hearing Aid Resources:

Website forwarded by Mo Division of Vocational Rehab: It mostly has information related to children and those under 20 years of age. It also talks about Veteran's and the policies with VA benefits:  Many resources pertain to certain regions of the country but for the most part it is very clear on what areas it serves.

General website that lead to the big list:

Could be very helpful. It is 48 pages so you may want to save to a folder.
