Wednesday – February 7, 2018
Orange Day
Happy Birthday Shawna Baysinger!

Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement; personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.  Sanborn Central has been very fortunate to have some of the best counselors in the area.  Mrs. Johnson works with our smallest students to our college bound ones.  We take our hats off to you for always going above and beyond for us!!!!
