Counseling Program

Klenk’s counseling program emphasizes character education and is structured to support our students, faculty/staff, parents, and community. Character education and school support are achieved through communication, individual counseling, guidance lessons, small groups, crisis intervention, and program implementation. Klenk’s counselor helps facilitate our at-risk students and serves on the GT committee.

Parent Involvement

Klenk Elementary is a Title I campus and is fortunate to have a full-time parent liaison. The parent liaison not only assists parents with translations, but also assists administration in promoting parent involvement in many ways. We encourage our parents and community to become volunteers and get involved on campus.
