Hello Mark West Community,

We all hope you are doing well as we turn the corner onto the spring season, we have so many fun items coming up at each site. From field trips to spring break everyone on campus will begin to feel that spring is in the air. We hope you can all join us celebrating another wonderful year here at MWUSD.

The counseling team will continue on their journey serving students, families and staff on a regular basis. We continue seeing students individually, group counseling sessions, SEL (Social Emotional Learning) presentations, student conflict resolution, signs of suicide presentations (6th-8th grade only), participating in student/parent meetings (when appropriate) supporting teachers/staff, supporting administration, and student check-ins.

If you would like your student to participate in counseling services please reach out to your school counselor.

Thank you,

MWUSD Counseling Team
