Our Families are the Key to Success

Another very important element in the guidance program is to help connect our parents with any information they may need to help their children be successful. Whether it be a consultation with the counselor, a conference with a teacher or a referral for assistance within our community, please do not hesitate to contact me at 256-464-3614 ext.109. My goal is to help your children be successful in every way and to serve the families of our school.
