    Dear Students and Parents,

     

    Beginning the week of Aril 20, please log into the google classroom for your grade-level to access your guidance lessons. I have included the informaiton below. You can still find resources in the student resources and parent page tabs. For the time being, as we are all adjusting to using google classroom, I will not be posting on my calendar.

Also, make sure to take advantage of the information and lessons I post.

In "classwork", you will find the lessons posted for each week. I would love to see the work that you are completing. Please share it with me!

    On my Resources page, there are links for students to address areas they may want more information about. The Parent Page has a lot of helpful resources that can assist our parents as they navigate the current environment that we're in, as well as concerns that may come up with your children. There is a lot of valuable information on those pages!

    ** Monday April 27, I will be at Riverside West in the morning and East in the afternoon to assist with parents picking up their children't belongings. As such, I will not have regular office hours that day. If you have a matter that needs my attention on Monday, please e-mail me and indicate in the subject line *Attention Needed* and I will check my e-mail when I get home. If your concern does not require attention on Monday, I will respond on Tuesday. As always, if you have a serious mental health concern, please contact your mental health provider or call 911. If you have a concern for someone's safety or well-being, please continue to use Safe2Say, which can be found on my page in the "Safe2Say" section.

     

     

    *As your child's school counselor, my goal  is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program.  The guidance curriculum consists of structured developmental lessons designed to assist students in achieving the desired competencies in the academic, personal/social, and career areas.  Individual student planning will assist students individually in establishing personal goals and developing future plans.  Responsive services are the traditional duties of a school counselor.  These are typically in response to life situations and may include individual or small group counseling, meetings, or referrals.  Please feel free to contact me any time at 562-2121 ext. 3372 (East) or 2232 (West).
