• A School Counselor is

    Dear Mustang Families,

    Welcome back to a new school year!  I hope you and your family had a relaxing and adventure filled summer!

    This summer, my family and I enjoyed camping and hiking.  My oldest started college and we spent time in California getting her situated.  It was a busy and eventful summer and one I won’t forget.

    This will be my third year as the school counselor at Roy.  It’s an honor to be a part of this great community and I am excited to continue working with parents and staff in helping to promote academic, personal, and social development for all of our students.

    Throughout the school year, any student can request to meet with me.  Students can let their teacher know or leave a note in my mailbox (located on my office door).  Teachers, administrators and parents can also refer students.  During the year, select students will meet for friendship group.  If your child is invited to participate in a small group you will be asked in advance to fill out a permission slip.  I will also be going into classrooms to teach personal safety and social skills using our school-wide Second Step curriculum, as well as the district mandated bullying prevention.  If you feel your child could benefit from extra supports, or you have a concern about your student socially or academically, please contact me to set up a meeting, and we will work together as a team to find a solution. 

    My job is to help your child reach their maximum potential for learning! I can be reached by email at jtobiascox@bethelsd.org or by phone at 253-683-5119.  My office days at Roy are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. It’s going to be an amazing school year and I look forward to working with you and your student!

    Warmest Regards,

    Johanna Cox, M.Ed.
