Welcome Letter from Guidance

Dear Parents/Guardians, 


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year.  My name is Michele Stigliano and I am looking forward to a wonderful (and interesting!) year as your child’s School Counselor. The role of a School Counselor is a rewarding one and I look forward to assisting your child to grow academically, socially and emotionally.


The elementary years are a time when students begin to develop their academic self-concept, as well as their feelings of confidence and competence as learners. They are beginning to develop decision-making, communication, life skills, and character values. It is also a time when students develop and acquire attitudes toward school, self, peers, social groups, and families. It is essential that we work together to ensure a successful school year for your child(ren). If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 


I am eager to be working with the Newbury and Land O’Pines communities!


It is going to be an amazing year!
