Parent Information

Parenting a middle school child is both challenging and rewarding. Your child needs your support to recognize their growing independence while they learn to accept responsibility for their actions, learn from mistakes, and receive praise for hard work and good decisions.  

PASD Counselors are here to support both students and families!  If you have any questions or are in need of assistance please reach out to us.  We value working together as a team; Parent/Caregiver, Student, and School. 

Middle school is the time to start talking about your child’s dreams and aspirations, as their performance in Middle School has an impact on their future choices.
