Welcome to the
Hillside School Counseling Department!
Hello Hillside Hawks!We're so happy to be a part of this amazing 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 (Bahn, Dailey and Griffin), 1, 2, and 5 and Mrs. Peterson is the counselor for grades K (Breitzmann and Corigliano), 3 and 4. Mrs. Peterson is at Hillside on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Mrs. Darnell is at Hillside full-time. Mrs. Darnell's office and Mrs. Peterson's office is located in the main office hallway (near the art room).
We will be teaching classroom lessons roughly once every other week. Lessons begin for all classes in mid September and 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 and personal/social development.
