Help Is Here

Concerned about your child?

Have they experienced a traumatic event or a had significant loss?

Trouble sleeping, often anxious or over-stressed?

Low self-esteem?

Limited regard or concern for self or others?

Difficulty identifying and managing emotions?

Difficulty with concentration or maintaining self-control?

Frequently unable to regain composure after an emotional upset?

Social-emotional wellness is important for healthy child development.

There is help and support available at school.

Consider connecting with our school counselor



Mrs. Spain works with students on an individual basis for short-term counseling/student strategy sessions for finding solutions. If long-term counseling is more appropriate, requests for school-based community counseling can be made to serve the identified student needs. Parents are always welcome to consult with Mrs. Spain about counseling and student support services available to students and families.

Walk - Run - Bike to the State Capitols

Mrs. Collins invites you all to join Richmond Drive and the rest of the district as we visit the capitols of every state by tracking our walking, running or biking.

Let's all help RDES make it to the finish line!!
