WELCOME TO THE STARTOWN COUNSELOR CORNER :-)
October 4, 2017---Christmas Bureau Application Information sheets are going home today with all students. The Catawba County Christmas Bureau is a collaborative effort among many Catawba County agencies and organizations to provide food, toys, clothing and coats to children and teenagers in need of assistance during the Christmas season. Gifts are distributed at the American Legion Fairgrounds in December. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call or email Mrs. Hutto.
We LOVE our student lead PBIS Assemblies here at Startown! Thank you to the Maiden High School Basketball team and Cheerleaders for helping us celebrate! Great job to all of our individual award winners, classroom award winners, Encore award winners, Terrific Kids and Superb Faculty and Staff for making Startown a place everyone wants to be! Great job TIGERS!
The family can click on the link below and apply for this service by internet. If they do not have internet access, they can call ECCCM to apply. The application is very simple to complete. Usually, ECCCM will call back within 24-48 hours to advise the family their food is ready for pickup. Remember, they are closed on Fridays and weekends.
Hello Startown Families! The backpack program is a free program designed to meet nutritional needs of children and families who need food assistance throughout the weekend. We send backpacks of food home with your child each Friday. If you would like an application please email me or call and I will send one home with your student. Please return these applications (completely filled out) to the counseling office as soon as possible.
I will update the counseling webpage regularly to communicate important information. So, let's keep in touch and have a successful school year!
