Eagle Counselor Chronicles
Eagles. The counselors, teachers, and administrators have been diligently working to ensure that your child’s year is successful. We will periodically send out the
Eagle Counselor Chronicles. Each issue will address concerns and answer questions that you may have, as well as provide you with important information. There is a famous saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”. In order to prepare your child for success, we will have to work as a team, that means, you, teachers, administrators, and counselors. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s academic progress, we encourage you to communicate directly with your child’s teacher(s), as they interact and monitor your child’s progress on a daily basis.
