I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to you and your family.  My name is Ashley Barsaleau and I am the School Counselor at Beaver Meadow Elementary School. I am excited and honored to work alongside an amazing team of educators in supporting your child(ren) succeed in meeting their academic and social-emotional goals this year.

In an effort to meet all the students I will be scheduling “lunch bunches” in small groups at every grade level throughout the year.  During this time students will learn about me and each other.  I look forward to getting to know each child’s interests and developing relationships that are built on mutual respect and trust.  

This year, our school will focus on Mindfulness Education as a curriculum to help your child(ren) succeed in his or her academic goals, as well as support social and emotional growth throughout the school year.  Counseling sessions in a school setting are typically short-term in nature and focus on solutions to help your child succeed in all areas of their development. Counseling activities can include individual or group counseling, as well as whole class presentations and observations.  Many of these activities will focus on helping students learn ways to build positive social skills, gain confidence in their ability to interact with others and learn skills to solve problems and conflicts constructively.

           Please call the counseling office if you have any questions or concerns. I am thrilled to be working with your students and I look forward to meeting all the families that make Beaver Meadow Elementary School such a wonderful community!  All the best for a great school year!
