Welcome Back!

Welcome back for the 2017/18 school year! We are very excited to get to know you and your students. The counseling department is just getting things started with getting to know your students. We will be visiting classrooms and be providing lessons to each grade level over the coming weeks. 

Please keep in mind that we are no longer making schedule changes for the first semester. Students have been in classes for 2 weeks and instruction is in full swing. We don't want anyone falling behind at this point in the game.
