Elementary School Counselors

We are very fortunate to have two elementary school counselors who service the four elementary schools in the Oil City Area School District.

**Mrs. Bomboy is the Elementary School Counselor at Hasson Heights Elementary School.
**Mrs. Mailliard is the Elementary School Counselor at Seventh Street and Smedley.

Here are ten reasons why an elementary school student may want to visit their school counselor:

  1. To talk to someone you can trust and who will listen to you.
  2. To get help solving conflicts.
  3. To get help when you are new at school.
  4. Loss of a loved one or a pet.
  5. “I’m getting picked on at the bus stop and I don’t know what to do about it.”
  6. To share your success and proud moments.  We LOVE to hear good news too!
  7. “My mom and dad just told me they are getting divorced.”
  8. To get tips on how to study better, be a better friend, or role-play an important convsersation you may want to have with your parent or a friend.
  9. To participate in a group or join us for a lunch bunch.
  10. ….JUST TO SAY “HI, how’s your day going?”
The Elementary School Counselors participate in Kindergarten Parent Orientation Night held in the Spring. They present information on Guidance Services and attendance. In addition, the elementary school counselors attend Kindergarten Orientation in August before school begins so the incoming Kindergartners can meet them.
