The slide presentation is posted online here: Stress Management Presentation. Or you can access it anytime from the Resources section of the Counseling Website. We hope you find this information valuable to discuss with your students, and encourage them to feel welcome to see us for additional support whenever needed.

In addition, we'd like to share the "Counselors' Corner" interview on the KSSH News channel with Dr. Dittmar, where he answered questions pertaining to classes for next school year, summer assignments, summer school options, as well as understanding A-G eligibility and course validations (for college admissions to 4-year school). Here is the link to the video Interview.
