Learning today, leading tomorrrow!

  • Dear Parents,


    Welcome back to school Sippel Stallions! I am very excited to see all the bright and excited faces at Sippel Elementary. It is so exciting to see familiar faces and I will enjoy meeting and interacting with our new Sippel Stallions from this school year.

    As a school counselor, I will be available to assist you and your child when their behavior or emotions are affecting their academic and social performance in school. I believe students should feel that school is a safe place.

    Throughout the school year I will visit your children in their classrooms and conduct guidance lessons on various topics centered around the Character Counts and The Seven Habits program. I plan weekly activities for all students to participate in and encourage strong character development within the school day. I also provide lunch bunch groups and ongoing group and individual counseling when needed. Group counseling will only be conducted with parent permission.

    Referrals to the counselor are through recommendation by the teacher, a parent, or the individual student. You may receive a written copy of what we have discussed if your child has come to visit me. Please understand, I am here as a problem solver not as a disciplinarian.

    Once again, I am excited to be here and to be working with you and your children. My office hours are 7:30am-3:30pm and you can email me at ssalinas@scuc.txed.net.


    Mission statement: To promote a positive, healthy, and safe environment for all children to learn.
