Lower School Guidance PK3-8- Mindy Osborn

Welcome to Lower and Middle School!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am so thrilled to be a part of the Fuqua family as the Lower School/Middle School Counselor! Each week, students will participate in their advisory groups focusing on our core value of the month. A team of teachers and administrators plan each advisory. Example advisories include team building, individual building, presentations from guest speakers and middle school students working with lower school students.

I am available throughout the year to meet with students regarding a variety of needs. My #1 goal is to support your student academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out to me at anytime so we can partner to help your child reach their boundless individual potential! I can be reached via email at osbornmm@fuquaschool.com or via phone at (434) 392-4131 ext. 330.
