Our school counselors are certified professionals who assist students, teachers, parents/guardians, and administrators. School counselors help all students to develop their educational, social, career, and personal-emotional strengths and to become responsible and productive citizens. Their work is specific to the developmental stages of growth and related issues, tasks, and challenges. The K-5 school counselors are responsible for:
  • Implementing a guidance curriculum and counseling program to all students;
  • Providing counseling to individuals and groups of students;
  • Helping students in transition;
  • Consulting with and providing training to staff;
  • Participating in activities which contribute to the effective operation of the school;
  • Planning and evaluating the counseling program; and,
  • Pursuing ongoing professional growth. 

Please feel free to contact your child's school counselor with any questions or concerns.
