School Counselor / Family Connection 

I am the school counselor and I am here to provide and promote personal/social, academic and career services to your child. I am also here to support you as you support your child! As a caretaker, your past experiences with a school counselor may be vastly different than what your child will have. Today school counselors are certified, specially trained mental health professionals who focus on prevention and wellness through a counseling program that meets the needs of all students, not just a few.

School Counselor / Parent Connection
