Counselor Corner

Hello and welcome back to the Counselor's Corner! My name is Kristen Lombardo and I am your child’s school counselor. The school year is winding down. The summer is a good time for the children to relax, spend time with family and friends, and make memories. It is also a good time for the students to review what they have learned throughout the year. Students will be able to use my online office and enter all of the lessons I provided in the classroom this year. It might be a good break from their summer packets.

It was nice to finally have the structure and routine of a “normal” school year. If your child struggled to get into the routine and structure of school or suffered with anxiety it is important that they continue to follow a routine in the summer. Have them make a daily schedule. Make sure they spend some time outside of the home with friends or other family members to decrease the possibility of separation anxiety.

I am available if you have any questions or concerns. It is important that we all work together. I can be reached by email at lombardok@eastgreenwich.k12.nj.us or by phone at (856)423-0412 ext. 1051. I do not work during the summer but I do check my emails periodically. If you have an emergency please reach out to the main office and they can assist you. I look forward to working with you and your child. Have an amazing summer and make lots of memories!
