Counselor's Corner

Welcome back, Pirate Families!! I hope you had a nice and relaxing summer.

My name is Paige Riebel and I am the new Guidance Counselor here at Cardington-

Lincoln Elementary. I was born and raised in Delaware, Ohio and am so glad to now

call Cardington part of my story. Student advocacy, wellness, and success are what I

hope to bring to our students here at Cardington-Lincoln Elementary. I am eager to

watch us all grow together and individually as a school family during this 2022-

2023 school year.

Though this is my first year as a school counselor, I am very excited to immerse

myself into this role: supporting the success of students through academic, social,

emotional, and career guidance, as well as helping families in any way I can and

making connections with important community resources.

This year we will continue with the theme of positivity throughout the building. Our

PBIS systems will remain in place, including the famous Pirate Bucks to be

redeemed in the Pirate Shop. I will be in the 1-4 classrooms conducting prevention

lessons each week, lunch bunches and group sessions will be held regarding various

topics, and individual counseling will be conducted as needed.

I am looking forward to an exciting and successful school year! Please do not

hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have about your

child. You can reach me by phone at (419) 864- 3691 ext. 2004, or by email at

Best regards,

Ms. Riebel
