Betz Elementary Counseling Mission 

In partnership with other educators, parents/guardians, and the community it is the role of the school counselor to utilize data driven best practices to ensure that all students develop the skills, knowledge, and understanding necessary to be successful in our changing society. It is the mission of the Betz Elementary School counseling program to provide a high quality, comprehensive school counseling services with equal access to all students.  

Vision Statement

My vision as the counselor is that all Betz Elementary students will acquire the academic, career and personal/social skills needed to reach their fullest educational potential and successfully manage their lives as healthy, responsible, competent and productive citizens who respect themselves and others.


Please don't hesitate to call if you have any concerns or questions.

Please stay safe and healthy,


Mrs. Bridie Riddick
