Welcome to Schuylkill Guidance!

We are pleased to enter another school year and give an overview of the services that we provide for students at Schuylkill Elementary School. 

The guidance department is available to assist you with any social and/or emotional concerns.  We do this during the course of the year by seeing students individually, in small groups of four to six students, and by going into classrooms several times during the year for counselor guided lessons.
