We hope you had a wonderful summer and are ready for a great school-year! We welcome all of our new students and look forward to getting to know all our new families soon.

As school counselors, our goal is to help every student be the best student they can be; this includes working directly with students as well as collaborating with families and staff.

Please let us know if there's anything we can do to help your child this year!

Meet our Counselors...
