School Counselor Office

Marlborough Elementary, Hereford Elementary and the 4th & 5th Grade Center will share the services of a K-5 Student Assistance Counselor. This school counselor will meet with at-risk, high need students and families. Our hope is to connect these students and families with internal and external services in order to provide a high level of support. The student assistance counselor will work closely with the school counselor to ensure the delivery of a wide continuum of services.

At Marlborough Elementary School the school counselor has many duties. The counselor welcomes new students by giving tours to them and their families upon request.

There are many times that students are having concerns that they need to work through. Our School counselor is available to meet individually with these students, as well as work with small groups helping students to build skills.

Several times a year the school counselor presents a guidance lesson to all of the grades. Appropriate themes are shared at each grade level. The lessons are presented to each individual classroom.

The school counselor is the 504 service plan coordinator for the school, as well as a member of the MTSS Team (Multi-Tiered System of SupportTeam) and SAP (Student Assistance Program) teams, working with children and parents.

The main duty of the School counselor is to assist children to be the very best they can be. Doing this may require individual or group work; charting and goal setting; as well as working with teachers and parents.

The school counselor can be reached by calling 215-541-7299 ext. 7219
