Welcome to the Guernsey-Sunrise Guidance and Counseling Department. Please utilize the useful student and parent resources as well as the information about our department you find on this webpage. If you have suggestions for what you would find helpful on the counselor’s web page, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Below you’ll find an outline of our department goals. School counselors work toward these goals for students through classroom based or large group sessions and small support groups for students. Counselors may also work individually with students to assist them in solving problems and coping with situations that may be affecting school performance. Counselors may also meet with students with special needs to provide services related to individualized student goals.

All seniors at Guernsey-Sunrise High School have access to a Google classroom created by the school counselor. Each scholarship that comes across the counselor’s desk or email finds its way to the Google classroom. Please visit with your senior regarding access to the Google classroom, as access is limited to the students through their gsviking.org email account. Additionally, you will find links below to each of the Wyoming community colleges, the University of Wyoming and other nearby colleges, as well as links to some helpful scholarship resources.
