Krystle Page

Welcome to the High School portion of Groveton ISD's Counselor Corner! I am Krystle Page and I am the High School Counselor for Groveton ISD. This is my ninth year at Groveton ISD (I've taught at both the high school and elementary campuses), and my second year as a counselor. I am very blessed to call Groveton home and raise my children as Groveton Indians. 

 

As the school counselor, I work with students, teachers, and parents to ensure that all of our students are socially and academically successful. I periodically send out newsletters (which are posted below) to students and you are welcome to subscribe to them as well. Communication is very important as we work together to help our students succeed. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at kpage@grovetonisd.net or 936-642-1473 ext 8119.
