School Counselor's Corner


Welcome to School Counselor's Corner. My name is Dawn Panther and  I am assigned to all 6th, 7th, & 8th graders whose last names end in the letters A-K.  If a student would like to speak to me, the student simply stops by the Guidance Office and request a "purple form" from Mrs. Janoske, the secretary. Once completed, the student returns the form to her.  Unless the student request is urgent, I see students during homeroom, lunch, or RAMS period.  

Just Be Yourself Club will be starting up soon. The club will met twice a month to plan and implement creative in-school activities to help create a more positive, safe school climate. Students may pick up a parent/guardian permission form in the Guidance Office. The form must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the Guidance Office before students will be permitted to participate.
