 A Message from the School Counselor

 I would like to extend a heartfelt invitation to encourage all students and parents to utilize services made available through the school counseling program at Poplar Middle School.

            Areas in which the school counseling program may be especially helpful to you and your child include 1) personal and social issues, 2) academic concerns and study skills, and 3) goal setting and career exploration in preparation for high school.

            Throughout the year I facilitate a variety of activities to support school counseling program objectives. I maintain a webpage devoted to providing easily accessible and up-to-date school counseling related information.

             I enthusiastically look forward to working with you and your child to help ensure that his or her experience at Poplar Middle School is a successful and positive one. 

             If you have questions or concerns, please contact me  at 768-6762 or laura.lake@poplarschools.com for more information. --Laura Lake
