Hello! My name is Ms. Gresko, and I have been a School Counselor at Harris Road Middle since 2013. Prior to becoming a School Counselor, I worked in Outdoor and Environmental Education, for places like the YMCA, the US National Whitewater Center, and Mecklenburg County Parks and Rec.
I am the 8th grade counselor. I look forward to working with all of the Harris Road students this year! Like you, we are concerned with the social and emotional health of our students during this time of school closure. To support our students, we will be providing weekly lessons to promote resiliency, coping skills and self-management. Parents will be notified through the a newsletter of the district's weekly theme, skills covered and any additional resources that are being provided to students and parents.
Our SISP team will be working closely with teachers to monitor the well-being of our students. While we are unable to check-in with students face to face as we normally would, virtual check-ins would allow us to screen students that may need of additional support. To help facilitate that process, we ask that all parents complete the VIRTUAL CONSENT FORM. As per our regular practices, parents would be notified of any concerns and need for continued support.
After a parent has filled out the Virtual Consent Form, students can click Student Services Request Form to schedule an appointment to speak with Ms. Gresko, Mr. Indenbaum (School Social Worker) or Ms. Shelton (School Psychologist).
Following Classroom Guidance during Social Studies class in September, please fill out the following form so I can get to know you better!
