Dear Mustang Families,
Thank you for visiting our webpage! It’s an honor to be a part of this great community and to be serving as your student’s school counselors. We are 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 us by personal, teacher, staff, administrator, or parent referral. Mrs. Cox will be the Kindergarten - 2nd grade counselor and Mrs. Walston will be the 3rd grade - 5th grade counselor.
During the year, select students will be invited to participate in various social/emotional development groups. If your child is invited to participate in a small group you will be asked in advance to fill out a permission slip. If you feel your child could benefit from extra supports, or you have a concern about your student socially or academically, please contact your students grade level counselor to set up a meeting, and we will work together as a team to find a solution.
Our job is to help your child reach their maximum potential for learning by supporting their social and emotional needs. We look forward to working with you and your student!
Johanna Cox, M.Ed. and Valerie Walston, M.Ed.
