Greetings from Ms. Roney:

Hello everyone! My office is a safe space for students to come talk about anything they need or want to discuss. I strive to help students succeed both academically and in all aspects of their lives. I enjoy collaborating with families to ensure that every child at Gray Stone is as successful as they can be.

My school counseling program is designed to be both preventative and responsive, including individual counseling, group counseling, classroom guidance, and family nights throughout the year. I work with students on any concern that may become a barrier to academic success. By the end of every school year, your student should know my role and that I’m here to help!

Topics of support are frequently

  • Study skills, organization and time management
  • Coping skills for anxiety, anger, grief, and depression
  • 6th grade and transfer student transitions
  • Preparation for high school
  • Self-esteem, identity, friendship, and social skills
  • Social media safety and bully prevention
  • College and career exploration

Any student who wishes to see me can stop by my office at any time, or make an appointment by email or paper request at the front desk.

I look forward to working with you and your child!
