Thank you for visiting the White Pine School Counseling website.  All students have access to the school counselor. As counselors, we assist with personal & social issues, academic concerns, & career exploration.  
"How do I see my counselor?"  Always check in with your teacher before going to the counseling office. If the counselor is unavailable, please leave a note outside of the counselor's office. Your school counselor will see you as soon as possible.
