Lisa McQuay



Dear TPS Parents/ Guardians, My name is Lisa McQuay and I am the school counselor at Thurmont Primary. I am very excited to be part of the Cougar Learning Community! This will be my 19th year working in the FCPS system. I spent 15 wonderful years working as a Health and PE teacher at both the elementary and middle school levels. I then moved into my current role as a school counselor at Valley Elementary where I spent 2 years. Now, I get to enjoy my passion for helping children in my home community! Elementary school years set the tone for developing the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for children to become healthy, competent, and confident learners. Through a comprehensive developmental school counseling program, I will be working with the school staff, parents and the community to create a caring climate and atmosphere. Please visit my website ( for helpful resources and an overview of the FCPS elementary counseling curriculum. I’m looking forward to an exciting school year!

Sincerely, Lisa McQuay
