Parents are an extremely important part of a childs education. In the counseling department, we believe parent involvement is key to a student's success. We have amazing parents in our school family and we understand that there is a time in every parents life when they need a little extra support.
As your school counselor, I am able to obtain needed resources inside and outside of the school setting to support your unique situations. Here are a few resources you may find helpful. Feel free to contact me if you need any additional support.
