Our mission in the IES counseling department is to support every student in reaching their full potential! That means fostering academic achievement, ensuring positive peer relationships, and preparing students for a successful high school career that will lead to success after graduation from school.
MEET THE COUNSELOR
My name is Sandra Smith and I am excited to be here at IES! My goal as a school counselor is to create a working partnership between students, families, teachers, and the community in order to provide the best possible school experience for all IES students. I would like to invite all parents/guardians to contact me if they have a concern about their child, if they have a suggestion for our school, or would like to donate their time to the growth of our school.
You are also welcome to complete the Counselor-Parent Meeting Form, printable version available HERE. Once completed, please feel free to turn it into the IES school office in a sealed envelope addressed to my attention.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 814-899-8743 ext. 3142.
Mrs. Sandra Smith
