Parents are an extremely important part of a childs education. In the counseling department, we believe parent involvement to be key to a student's success. Although we have amazing parents in our school, we understand that there is a time in every parents life when they need a little extra support. The resources on this page are here to provide that to you during your time of need.
Here you will find community resources, helpful parenting website links and monthly parenting newsletters which will include tips and ideas to further support you and your family. If you find that you are needing additional support, please do not hesitate to contact our counselor.
