What's happening in the school counseling office?

Students taking online college classes should be on the look-out in their e-mail inbox or postal mailbox for introductory information from their college. This will include instructions on how to activate your StarID and how to access your online college course. Online college classes will begin Tuesday, September 3. (You will also receive an information letter from Mrs. Boeshans in August regarding your online college class.)

What do Licensed School Counselors do?

School counselors are licensed by the Minnesota Board of Teaching and are required to have a master's degree in school counseling. We have specialized training to work with all students in grades K-12 individually, in small groups, and in the classroom setting. We support students, families, and school staff so students can be successful in school! We offer support in three main areas:

  • Academics
  • Career Exploration and Post-secondary Education Access
  • Social/Emotional Concerns

How do students and parents/guardians connect with us?

Students can self-refer or can be referred by parents/guardians or staff members. Students can stop by our office, leave us a note, send an e-mail, or let a secretary know they'd like to see us. Parents and guardians are welcome to stop by, call, or e-mail. (You'll have better luck catching us in our offices if you call ahead!)
