Guidance

Welcome to the PV Guidance Department!

The guidance department is run by Mrs. Terri Praschak and Miss Lindsey Toth. Families with the last name L-Z work with Mrs. Praschak and families with the last name A-K work with Miss Toth.

The PV School Counselors work closely with teachers, families, and other school staff. The counselors are available to answer questions as well as arrange parent-teacher conferences. They also work extensively with students by providing academic, social, and emotional support as needed.
