Mrs. Foutner is committed to providing wrap-around services that enhance the mental and physical health of our children.

Counseling Services

  • Mrs. Foutner  addresses the needs of our students through whole groups, small groups, and one-on-one counseling sessions with students. As a Leader in Me School, we stress the importance of students "carrying their own weather", which means they are in control of how they react to any given situation.  Students who may need to talk with Mrs. Foutner virtually can schedule to meet with her through Teams and interact with her online digital resources. Our counseling goal is to empower students to use a variety of tools, coping mechanisms and proactive strategies so they can have ownership of their feelings and actions.
