Counseling Department


As a School Counselor, I work with students on an indivudual basis, in small groups, and sometimes in the classroom.  The counseling program has 3 areas of focus:  Academic, Career, and Personal/Social.  Students may be referred to see me by teachers, administrators, other staff, or parents.   If you wish for the school counselor to work with your student individually (or in a group) please contact me at 620-365-4795.

Worst Day Ever?  

by Chanie Gorkin

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don't try to convince me that

There's something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look,

This world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don't last.

And it's not true that 

It's all in the mind and heart


True happiness can be attained

Only if one's surroundings are good

It's not true that good exists

I'm sure you can agree that

The reality


My attitude

It's all beyond my control

And you'll never in a million years hear me say

Today was a very good day


Now read the poem from bottom to top.  This is a great example of how our thoughts directly effect our attitude and feelings about things!
