Counseling Curriculum

Friday, September 6, 2019

This year there is a new counseling curriculum for grades K-8. Kindergarten through 5th grade will be using SecondStep. This is a social and academic learning curriculum. Students will occasionally be bringing home a homework sheet which helps them review the skill we are working on. It also gives parents an opportunity to see what the students are learning.

Grades 6-8 will be using Life Skills curriculum. This curriculum talks about healthy living, decision making skills, and goal setting.

If you have any questions about any of the curriculum or would like to preview it, please contact Ms. B at school at 852-2275 or email


Financial Aid Night

Tuesday, September 3, 2019
There will be a Financial Aid night on Monday, September 23 at 7:00 P.M. in Mr. Liechti's room. The north door will be open. This informational meeting is geared for seniors' parents but can also be beneficial to junior parents. Even if you don't think your child will qualify for financial aid, it's a good idea to attend and complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). If you are unable to attend, but would like more information, please contact Ms. B at the school 852-2275.
