• Parent Resources


    The Simonton Elementary School Counseling Program is committed to helping all children succeed. We believe that parents play a fundamental role in children's success at school. Research has found that parent participation in a student's education can positively affect academic, behavioral, and social development.

    We are dedicated to working with parents, teachers, and staff at Simonton to help your child overcome any barriers that may impede their learning. Please contact any of us if you have any questions or concerns. We are more than happy to set a conference with you to find out how we can better serve your child's needs.
