Counselor's Corner

Dear parents, welcome to the new school year! For those of you who are new to Harlow Elementary School, my name is Michelle Gilbert and I am the school counselor. I'm so excited to get to know each and everyone of you and your students! I go into every classroom each month and teach proactive lessons so all students can get to know me and vice versa. I also provide Brief Solution Focused Counseling for small groups and individuals, and collaborate with stakeholders to help students be the best they can be! Would you be willing to give me input on topics that are important to you and your family through a brief needs assessment survey? I would appreciate your time in filling out the following!

Thank you so much! My e-mail is michelle.gilbert@annaisd.org and my telephone number is 972-924-1336.

Parents are allowed four written excused notes every semester and should provide the adequate documentation to the attendance clerk. We do not excuse absence using the call in method.

Once a student is absent, due to personal illness, they must bring a statement from a doctor or health clinic verifying the students absence from school.

Students are considered tardy if they are not in class by the 7:30 bell.
