Counselor's Corner

Mrs. Dumas - Mittelstadt Elementary School Counselor

Welcome Back Patriots!

I'm excited to serve your child and family as the school counselor. This is my 5th year at Mittelstadt and I'm excited to see how we can help our students develop their GREATNESS! I look forward to sharing more information with parents as we settle back into our routines.

For our families affected by Hurricane Harvey and the floods...

At Mittelstadt, we are very fortunate to have a school that did not sustain any damage. We were able to re-open our doors to our students last week and provide a sense of normalcy for all. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of our Patriot Families dealing with the rebuilding of their homes.

Our Patriot community is always a very caring and supportive community during times of need. If your family was affected by the floods and you find yourself in need of help, please do not hesitate to contact me. Currently on our campus, we have some donations left and would like to get them to anyone who could use them.

Some of the items available:

  • Bottled water packs / Gallons of water
  • Various size diapers
  • Infant formula - Enfamil (0-12 mo), Nutramigen (0-12 mo.), Enfamil Gentlease
  • Canned - corn, green beans, and cream of chicken
  • Pet needs - dog food, cat food, puppy pads
  • Backpacks
  • Lunch kits
  • Children's clothes of various sizes
  • Adult clothes of various sizes
  • Some toys

If you are in need of items not listed, please let us know and we will put you in contact with someone who can help. We have many community members just waiting to find out how they can help at this stage of the recovery process.
