At the elementary school level, the School Counseling program is implemented by Mrs. Amanda Gimondo (Munsey Park Elementary) and Mrs. Jenny Chen (Shelter Rock Elementary). While there are elements of the school counseling program conducted by all school counselors at the elementary and secondary schools, the primary focus of the elementary school counseling program is the development of the social and emotional competencies of all children. Throughout the year, Mrs. Gimondo and Mrs. Chen make multiple visits to each class at both Munsey Park and Shelter Rock. During these visits, they conduct thematically developed lessons designed to address topics including: friendship, bullying, personal space, empathy, and stress.
Please refer to the complete School Counseling Plan for a full review of the elementary school program.
