School Counseling Summer Newsletter

June 2015

Happy Summer!

Congrats on almost completing another year at Tahanto! Summers provide important time to plan ahead. Visits to college campuses, academic and sports camp participation, and volunteer/community service activities all come together to strengthen a student’s sense of what they find interesting and rewarding. This newsletter will give you some useful summer resources and valuable information.

Just a reminder that this current newsletter and any past or future newsletters will be posted in the “newsletters” folder on the left hand side of the school counseling webpage found at

Please feel free to contact School Counselor, Lauren Clark, at, with any questions.

Changes for Next Year

I will be out on maternity leave for the fall. I will be returning to Tahanto on November 30th. In my absence there will be a new counselor. Her contact information will be provided on the counseling website in the fall!

Change of student caseloads for the 2015-2016 school year:
