A Message from our School Counselor

Dear St. Vincent School Family,

Welcome back to another school year! Hopefully it will be full of new and exciting experiences. During the months of August and September, I will be entering the classrooms and introducing (or reintroducing for returning students) myself and explaining what my role in your child’s school is as the School Counselor. As I did last year, I would like to extend this information to you as parents and/or guardians as well.

As the School Counselor at St. Vincent, I am here to provide assistance to you and your child to help them succeed in academics, social settings, and help guide a successful path to the future. I utilize a strengths-based approach in all my services which include short term counseling, classroom lessons, family support and training, as well as school-wide programs fostering community enrichment. I also assist students with educational, personal, career and goal planning.

Please feel free to contact me at any time during the school year if you would like to discuss your child’s needs, have concerns, need information, or need further resources.

I look forward to a wonderful school year!

Best Regards,

Marie West, MA / School Counselor
St. Vincent de Paul School
