GLE is Celebrating National School Counseling Week: Feb. 6-10th

We are so thankful for Ms. Gresh at GLE. She is a long-standing member of the GLE community who has dedicated herself to our students, families, and our staff.

The theme of this year’s week is “School Counselors: Helping Students Dream Big.” Ms. Gresh's number one goal, as a school counselor, is to help students succeed? Whatever they need to be successful at school – whether that’s learning how to stay motivated to complete work, having positive relationships with fellow students, self-advocating or overcoming barriers – she is here for it.

You’ve probably heard of actor and producer Tyler Perry. He said, “I don’t think the dreams die. I think people give up. I think it gets too hard.” Sometimes achieving your dreams IS hard, but Ms. Gresh is here to help you not give up. As your school counselor, she wants to help you achieve your dreams!
