    Counselor for all 6th graders.

    If your child as a question or concern, I am located in the B-House office.  If I am out of the office there is a sign-up sheet located in the outer waiting area of the B-House office.  I will call down students who sign-up to see me as soon as possible.

    In middle school, we do not have regularly scheduled conferences like the elementary schools do.  If you have a question or concern about your child's class and need to meet with his or her teachers, please call me to set up a conference.  We normally hold conferences Monday through Friday, first thing in the morning at 8:00.  Usually, all of your child's main subject teachers will attend the conference, unless you specify the teachers you would like to meet with. 

    In middle school, report cards are no longer mailed home.  We ask that you check the parent portal in Powerschool, which display's your child's current grades. Once an account is set-up, you can access your child's grades as soon as the teachers post them.  (If you did not receive your account set-up ID and password, please e-mail me and I will send it home with your child.)  We suggest that you check your child's grades regularly to see if he/she is keeping up with assignments.  If you have a question or concern regarding a class please call or e-mail the teacher first, as they can explain your child's specific grades for assignments.  If you need more information, please call me and I will be happy to set up a conference for you.

    Many academic issues can be solved by checking your Powerschool, checking teacher's websites for homework information (now on google classroom), or by e-mailing the teachers directly.  The majority of students who may be struggling with middle school are usually not completing their homework or projects.  Checking to make sure these assignments are done and ready to turn-in will help your child have a successful middle school experience.
