    The Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Jackie Robinson (known to the students as "Auntie Jackie"), has developed a Character Education Program - "We Are Family". She works with each classroom on a regular schedule and counsels individual students on an "as needed" basis.

    Her role as guidance counselor is embodied in a personal message from her.

    Additionally, all teachers are presented with opportunities throughout the day to reinforce these values, resolve conflict, make positive choices and solve problems.


    Oak Grove- Bellemeade continuously develops and implements strategies that facilitate optimal learning opportunities for all children guided by the six goals identified by Richmond Public Schools.
