Counseling Center
 

Elementary counseling attempts to  help all children get the most out  of school.  
Your support and cooperation can help make your child’s school  years a rewarding experience.  It is our hope that parents and students  feel free to use these services. I look for ward to working with you. I can be contacted by phone or by email.
