Professional school counselors function as facilitators between parents, teachers and the student in matters concerning the student’s goals, abilities and any areas needing improvement.  School counselors provide services not only to students in need, but to all students.

 As your 7-8 counselors, we want to take this opportunity to give a warm welcome to our new and returning students. The middle school years provide great opportunities for students to not only mature in their academic studies, but to also explore their personal interests and talents.  As counselors, we offer support in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social growth, both individually and in groups.  Since middle school students are changing physically and emotionally, it is especially important for them to strive for a balance in both their academic and social lives. 

 In working towards finding this balance, we hope your child will become involved in the clubs, athletic teams, activities and leadership opportunities offered during his/her seventh and eighth grade years. Our after school dances provide fun social opportunities and traditionally, our students have especially enjoyed the Small School competitions in the annual Turkey Bowl and Basketball Bowl.

 We look forward to working with you and your child.  Please feel free to let us know if we can be of any help.
