Welcome to my web page.
My name is Olga Elkis and I am the School Counselor here at Liberty Elementary! I'm thrilled to join Liberty Elementary and looking forward to getting to know the students, staff, parents and the community. My job is to be a resource for you and your child to ensure that your child's school experience is the best that it can be.
My continued goal is to provide counseling in the areas of academics, personal, social and career education. I will provide this through classroom lessons, one-on-one counseling and groups. I am excited to begin the year with a visit into every classroom, reminding our students what the role of a counselor is. I will be visiting every classroom monthly to teach lessons that cover the objectives of the essential counseling curriculum.
I am available to provide short term, one-on-one counseling and support for students experiencing difficulties that may interfere with their success in school. If a child continues to have difficulty, I will assist families in finding an appropriate outside community resource for long-term counseling.
I will provide groups or “Lunch Bunches” to offer students the benefit of sharing with their peers as well as to provide the opportunity to learn new skills and to leave the group with a stronger sense of self. I will be doing groups on an as need basis, per teacher/grade recommendation. If your child is selected by his or her teacher, I will send out a permission form for parent signature and detailed information about the group.
If you have specific concerns about your child, please feel free to call or email me. I look forward to a great school year with our staff, parents, and students.
