Welcome to the
Hillside School Counseling Department!
Hello Hillside Hawks!
We're so happy to be a part of this wonderful Hillside family! This will be Mrs. Darnell's 13th year & Mrs. Vilbas's 3rd year here at Hillside. As your counselors, we are always here to help you with any problems you may be having while you are at school.
For the 2014 - 2015 school year, Mrs. Darnell will be the counselor for grades KG PM, 1, 4 & 5 and Mrs. Vilbas will be the counselor for grades KG AM, 2 & 3. Mrs. Vilbas will be at Hillside on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays in the office in the front hallway (across from the art room). Mrs. Darnell is at Hillside full-time & her room is located in the guidance office (right next to the art room).
We will be teaching classroom guidance lessons roughly once every other week. Guidance lessons will begin for all classes the second week of school & continue all year long. All guidance lessons are based on the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model where the focus will be on academic, career & personal/social development .
