    Counseling Goals


    Our desire as school counselors is to help our children be successful at home, at school, in their community and in life.  Often, we serve as consultants for parents and teachers.  We have resources available for parents concerning parenting, discipline, child development, school success, and other issues that we would be happy to lend to you.  Please feel free to contact us for a confidential discussion regarding any issue concerning your child.  We will be happy to discuss any aspect of the guidance and counseling program with you.  Our goal is to provide encouragement, support, and positive reinforcement for your children here at school.
