Welcome to the School Counseling Department!

Professional School Counselors

Your school counselors provide counseling services to all students by your last name. Our offices are located in the main office. Once students receive a pass from their teacher, they can go to the right side of the office and check in with our school counseling secretary, Mrs. Hellman. At that time, they will sign in and the student will be sent down the hallway to our offices.

To schedule a conference with your student's teachers, please call Mrs. Hellman at 825-4529.

We look forward to serving your student at any time though out the school year on a variety of issues. These can be conflict mediation, scheduling, academic concerns or personal issues. We also provide classroom guidance lessons on pertinent topics throughout the year, see all students for "minute meetings" to get to know them and if there are any issues needing to be addressed further, and hold conferences about grades.
