McDonald Elementary School has two school counselors who support Centennial School District’s goals to meet a diverse learning community where all students have the ability to succeed through academics, athletics, and the arts. Additionally, the counselors support students’ academic, career, and social/emotional development to ensure a successful K-12 through post-secondary pathway. Counselors serve as leaders, advocates, facilitators, and collaborators with parents, students, administration, faculty/staff, and the Centennial School District community. Counselors meet with students on an individual and/or group basis and provide the following services:

  • Academic Advising

  • Social/Emotional Support

  • Career Exploration

  • School and Community Resources/Referrals

The counselors are located in the Counselor’s Suite. Should you have any questions regarding services or support for your son/daughter, please contact your son/daughter’s school counselor at your earliest convenience.
