• 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 the full-time School Counselor at Valley Grove Elementary! I work alongside the teachers and administration to help all students at VGES get the most out of school.  While the teachers focus on the academic learning in the classroom, my role is to assist with the social and emotional development of students at all grade levels. 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 my position will add another level of depth to their education.  

    This is my third year at the elementary level. I previously worked with grades 7-12 at RGHS and before that, grades 10-12 at Venango Technology Center. 

    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!
