Powell Elementary Counselor Form- Request for Assistance

Hi Powell Parents! I am Mrs. Nixon, the Counselor at Powell Elementary. This will be my 10th year as the counselor at Powell. My role on campus is to work with students, parents and teachers to provide a positive environment where students can become lifelong learners.

Another part of the counseling program is coordinating resources for students throughout the year. In order to meet the needs of our students I will need a little information from parents. This form will help guide me in providing families with the needed resources.
