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 14th year & Mrs. Vilbas's 4th 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 2015 - 2016 school year, Mrs. Darnell will be the counselor for grades K, 2, 3 & 5 and Mrs. Vilbas will be the counselor for grades 1 & 4. Mrs. Vilbas will be at Hillside on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Mrs. Darnell is at Hillside full-time. Both counseling offices are located in the main office.
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 .
