Welcome to the Guidance & Social Work Page!

                 Mrs. Gross                                                     Mrs. Napoli (previously Rancourt)

My name is Mrs. Gross and I am the 
social worker 
  at Rowe School and Yarmouth Elementary School!
I am at the schools on Monday, Tuesday, & Friday (morning only)

My name is Mrs.Napoli, I am the school counselor at Rowe school. I am available on Mondays, Thursday (PM only) and Fridays. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions and check our site for updates (and useful info) throughout the year!

We are thrilled to welcome Corey Hodges, a graduate student completing his internship in school and mental health counseling! He is joining our Rowe community for the remainder of the school year and will be learning and facilitating many of my typical counseling functions. We are so excited to have an extra set of eyes and hands to support our students! Your child may see Corey teaching lessons in the classroom, join him in a group or work with him one on one. Thank you for welcoming him!

Happy September!
Welcome back to a new school year! I am so excited to see all the happy returning faces and a warm welcome to our new K families. I look forward to working with all of you! Please don't hesitate to reach out and note my new schedule this year is Monday, Thur PM, and Friday!
And yes I have a new name after getting married this summer! Hope you all enjoy the beautiful fall weather. 

October Update
It was wonderful to see so many of you at our open house and I look forward to getting to know your children! I will be in the classrooms this month focusing on self-esteem and accepting differences. Just a reminder that my first round of counseling groups will be starting in October... please let me know if your child is in need of any additional support beyond the classroom (topics could be anxiety, changing families, managing emotions, etc). These groups will run for approx. 8 weeks and there will be three sessions throughout the school year. Check back for more updates on my guidance curriculum!
Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Happy 2019!
I hope you are enjoying winter! Our guidance lessons for the next few months will be focused on identifying big vs. small problems, using I-messages, and lots of friendship work! Hopefully, we won't have too many snow days and the kids can enjoy outdoor recess as often as possible! 

Happy Spring (or late winter)!
I was hopeful we had put snow and winter jackets behind us but it seems mother nature has other ideas! Our guidance lessons are still underway practicing lots of problem solving skills and stretching our brains! Ask your children about Kelso the frog and his strategies. April will also include lessons for Earth Day and some mindfulness work. My last round of counseling groups will be starting this week... as well as another round of Growth Mindset run by our intern and social worker. Hopefully these interventions have been helpful in supporting your children!
     May will be busy with K- screening and ending our guidance curriculum with some fun career development activities! I hope you all have a wonderful spring break and I look forward to seeing many of you during our exciting and busy end of year events!
