Welcome to the Counseling Department

​​​Welcome to the Counseling Department!  Mrs. Bloomquist and Mrs. Lawlor are here to help your child as they navigate the twists and turns of middle school life.  Middle School can be a challenging time for both parents and students as this is a time of rapid change.  We are here to help!  The Counseling Department is committed to helping your child reach their full potential during the school year.  We emphasize the importance of time management, strategies for coping with stress, and organization.  In addition, our goal is to teach the standards as outlined in all three domains including Academic, Career, and Social/Emotional, as recognized by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA.)  Do not hesitate to call or contact us if you have any questions concerning your child's progress. 

We can be reached by the following:
