The Student Services Department includes the areas of special education and pupil services. Our Student Services Department is dedicated to an investment in the learner as a whole and believes that strong relationships with children and families is at the heart of all that we do. We are committed to providing universal strategies and supports through social-emotional learning curriculum and prevention programs designed to provide students with the skills they need to engage socially, academically and within the greater community. We are solution-focused, creative, and strengths-based when it comes to designing programs and services to meet the unique challenges faced by students today. Our goal is to collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure that each child has what they need to be successful.

Student services cover a wide variety of topics, some of which include: child find/screening, special education, anti-discrimination law and 504 Plans, complaint reporting and investigation, school psychological and guidance services, home-bound services, homelessness, bullying, AODA prevention, community connections/resource, and data collection/analysis.

I am excited to start another school year and welcome any challenges and surprises it may bring. As your child's school counselor, I look forward to focusing on the whole child and helping them become successful and well rounded Warhawks. School counseling is available to all students in a variety of formats.

  • Classroom lessons for 4K-4th grades - Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum, careers, and protective behaviors (parental letters are sent home prior to these lessons)

  • Social-Emotional Learning (formerly Guidance) Classes for 5th grade - includes SEL lessons, careers, bullying prevention, and protective behaviors (parental letters are sent home prior to these lessons)

  • Life Choices Classes for grades 6-8 to include academic and career planning, goals, peer relationships, social skills.

In addition to classroom lessons, I provide individual and small group counseling sessions on a multitude of topics. Typically, counseling services last approximately 6-8 weeks. Parents/guardians are welcome to make referrals for their child(ren) with our School-Based Mental Health service providers. (Mental Health/Wellness). In addition to counseling, I am your resource for information regarding homelessness, bullying, and AODA prevention. Please contact me for more information regarding the learning successes of your child(ren).
