Welcome to the VGE Guidance Department webpage!
Here you will find resources and information to help you navigate your experience here at VGES.
My name is Carrie Beightol and I am thrilled to be the new full-time School Counselor at Valley Grove Elementary! I will be working alongside the teachers and administration to help all students at VGES get the most out of school. This is going to be a fun year filled with learning, growing and lots of new adventures. I cannot wait to get to know you, your family, and most importantly your child!
This is my first year at the elementary level, as the position was newly created this year. I previously worked with grades 7-12 at RGHS and before that, grades 10-12 at Venango Technology Center. I am so excited to begin the year and develop a counseling program that will provide education, prevention and intervention services to our students. Some of the counseling services provided include classroom lessons, individual counseling, small-group counseling, parent education, one-on-one conferences, resource referrals and community outreach. It is my hope that this school year will be full of successful experiences for all students and that this new position will add another level of depth to their education.
Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have concerns about your child or if you feel you could benefit from any of the services the school counseling program offers. I very much look forward to working with you and your child. Best wishes for an enjoyable and rewarding school year!
