What is Guidance Class?

All students at Sugar Creek go to guidance class. Guidance class happens once a week typically (except during short weeks, ISTEP & D.A.R.E.). Guidance monthly list of topics by grade can be seen by using link on the right side of page. 

Ms. Apple teaches guidance classes (except 5th grade D.A.R.E. lessons taught by Deputy Rice) and guidance lessons are based on the Indiana Guidance Competencies for Students developed by the Indiana Department of Eduction in 2015. To see the Indiana Guidance Competencies, see link to the right. 

The Indiana School Counseling Competencies for Students cover three areas: 

* Academic

* Career

* Social/Emotional


Specific curriculums and programs used or adapted in guidance by the North Montgomery Community School Corporation are:
