Hi Rams Families! I miss seeing everyone SO very much! Please reach out by email if you need something.

The focus of the program is prevention, and to foster positive social, emotional, and academic development for all students. As a helper in the school, the school counselor advocates for all students to work towards a successful school year.

Get to know Mrs. Parkhurst-
This is my 16th year as a school counselor.  I have been at Sandy Ridge since the school opened, and I am very proud and happy to be a RAM!  I did my Masters in Counseling at UNC Charlotte and am a National Certified Counselor (NCC# 95079) and an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor #6930) in the state of North Carolina. I love my job as an elementary school counselor!  I am passionate about supporting students and helping them gain skills to be more successful at school and in life. 

Away from Sandy Ridge, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I love being outside, music, cooking, and photography.
