Welcome to the JLSMS  School Counselors' Homepage!!


      The school counseling office would like to welcome summer.  During this brief time we will be working with our new J.L. Simpson families and new students.  We welcome new faces to our school community by assisting them with the registration process and course selection process.   We hope everyone has a fun safe summer.  We cannot wait to see our Simpson families and students in the 2016-2017 school year.


     The school counseling staff at J.L. Simpson will periodically visits the resource classes to discuss topics, such as bullying, cyber bullying,  and career exploration. The subject matter varies depending on the grade level. For grade specific information visit the counselor's website. You can access it by clicking the counselor's name in the column to the left.  Our school Counselor's also provide students with individual and small group counseling, in the areas of academic and personal/social development. If you need to set up a conference with your child's teachers, please contact your child's counselor to schedule it.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or email.   As a counseling department we firmly believe students have what it takes to be successful friends, leaders, students, stewards, and global citizens.
