Welcome back!!! I am your child’s school counselor. This is my first year with the Bethlehem Area School District and I am very excited to begin working with all of the wonderful students at James Buchanan Elementary School! I have previously worked as a school counselor in the Catasauqua Area School District and the Salisbury Township School District and as a mentor for the Center for Humanistic Change.
Did you know that elementary counselors……
- Teach classroom guidance lessons on a variety of topics?
- Meet with individual students as needed and maintain confidentiality?
- Meet with small groups of children with similar concerns?
- Consult with teachers and assist them in meeting individual student needs?
- Coordinate referrals to school and community agencies?
Guidance services are available to all parents and guardians and their children. Please feel free to call me if you have a concern or a question. I can be reached in the Guidance Office at (610)865-1766 ext. 61912. I look forward to getting to know you and your child. Best wishes for a fabulous school year!!!
Mrs. Holly Pasko, M.Ed
