When do I need to talk with my school counselor?
Your school counselor is your advocate and can help you problem-solve classroom situations. Any problem that you cannot stop thinking about, and it troubles you, is reason to talk with your counselor, teacher, or an administrator. We are always here to help when you are dealing with a crisis! Please ask your teacher for a pass. You can also come to the counseling office before or after the school day.
When parents need to meet with their student's counselor, email is the preferred method of communication, but please call if you have questions!
Last name designation is done by the last name on your birth certificate
(as it is listed in Skyward). If you have 2 last names, the first last name will be used in your counselor assignment.
Example: Jane Smith-Anderson would be alphabetical by using Smith.
