• Welcome to the
    Hillside School Counseling Department!


    Hello Hillside Hawks!   

    We're so happy to be a part of this wonderful Hillside family!  We're excited to be a part of another wonderful school year.  This is Mrs. Darnell's 19th year and Mrs. Peterson'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 2019 - 2020 school year, Mrs. Darnell is the counselor for grades K (Dailey & new teacher), 1, 2, & 5 and Mrs. Peterson is the counselor for grades K (Armstrong & Griffin), 3 & 4.  Mrs. Peterson is at Hillside three days a week.  Mrs. Darnell is at Hillside full-time. Mrs. Darnell's office is in the library and Mrs. Peterson's office is in the main office hallway. 

    We will be teaching classroom lessons roughly once every other week.  Lessons will begin for all classes during the first two weeks of September & continue for the entire school year.  All lessons are based on the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model where the focus will be on academic, career & personal/social development.
