Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of Valley View Elementary Center:
My name is Renee Berry and I am your child’s school guidance counselor here at Valley View Elementary School. I was a school counselor since 2010.
As a Pennsylvania certified elementary teacher and school counselor, my role is to provide all students with equal access to the guidance program through classroom guidance lessons, small group and individual counseling sessions. I am committed to help all students benefit throughout the year in three specific areas of education: academic, social/emotional, and career development. I am also directly involved with, and in support of the school-wide Olweus Bullying Prevention Program as well as a member of our Instructional Support Team & Student Assistance Program. I am heavily involved in our School-Wide Positive Behavior Support Program (PBIS).
Please note: both group and ongoing individual counseling sessions will not occur without parental permission and my services are not a replacement for therapy. I will be happy to provide, at any time, a variety of community resources when needed.
My door is always open so I encourage you and your children to utilize my programs and contact me with questions. I encourage you to visit this website often as an additional resource and for great information!
If at any point throughout the year you feel your child may benefit from any of these services, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or me directly. I hope we can all work together to make our time here at Valley View Elementary truly successful!
