• School counselors have lots of resources and ideas to help students be successful in school. 
    We love to talk to parents! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Our email addresses are listed below:
        3rd-5th Ms. Kathryn Welch: kathryn.welch@knoxschools.org
        K-2nd Mrs. Lorrie Place: lorrie.place@knoxschools.org

    You can call the office at 865-539-7772 to set up an appointment. Our extension number is 26617 
    You can also let your child's teacher know that you would like your child to meet with one of the counselors. 
    Many times, students refer themselves to us. Students can talk with Mrs. Place or Ms. Welch in 3 ways…
    1. Write a note and leave it in our mailbox. There is one mailbox outside of our office door which is on the west end of the building near the kindergarten hallway. There is also another mailbox in the middle of the 4th and 5th grade hallways. Students of all grades can put notes in either box and their counselor will get the note.
    2. Tell their teacher that they would like to talk with us. Teachers are great at relaying these requests. 
    3. Tell their parent that they would like to talk with us. Parents can call or email us at anytime throughout the year. You may also fill out our caregiver referral form that is linked below. The answers go directly to the counselor and will not be shared with anyone without permission.
