Lisa Perez is our school counselor. Counseling services are available during school hours. The SSPP counseling program provides students an opportunity to discuss specific needs in a supportive environment.

Students have confidential access to the school counselor where areas of concern can be addressed. Students can self-refer, parents may request assistance or teachers may recommend counseling services for a student. Classroom presentations include the subjects of friendship building, bullying prevention, self-esteem building, conflict resolution, decision-making skills and drug and alcohol prevention. Mrs. Perez will also cover the Safe Environment Programs.
