Greetings from Your School Counselors

                    Ms. Nicole Gleeton and Mr. Timothy Hargrove

                                  

The mission of the Portlock Primary School counseling program is to help all students, levels K-2, succeed and maximize their potential by supporting their development in academic, personal, social, and career domains.  The support is provided to students through individual planning, classroom curriculum, responsive services and collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators, and other community members and resources. 

 

We are excited to start our first year together as a counseling team and have many things planned: student of the month, new groups, and new guidance lessons.  Favorite programs like Lunch Bunch meetings and Career Day are returning but with some new twists.

We will be sharing Mr. Hargrove with Crestwood Intermediate School, so you can see him at Portlock Primary on Mondays and Tuesdays.
