Counseling Corner
Our school strives to provide extraordinary service toward helping children thrive and fulfill their potential. We support all students' mental health and recognize California Student Mental Health Week on May 10th-14th, 2021. This week draws attention to the important issue of student mental health.

Children and youth mental health issues are real, widespread, and treatable. One in five youth is identified as struggling psychologically. Take a moment to discuss with your child how important their mental health is to you.

Honor your child’s emotional wellbeing by trying new coping skills. Utilizing the virtual spirit week poster below, find new ways to support your child’s social-emotional learning. For parents, the California Association of School Counselors is offering a parent workshop on Thursday, May 13 titled Understanding and Responding to your Child’s Mental Health Needs in the Time of COVID-19.

For additional mental health support or information, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our School Counselor utilizing our Counselor Help Form. Thanks for standing with us as we bring awareness to the important issue of student mental health. #CA4StudentMentalHealth
