    School Counseling


    Mrs. Adams

    Dear MVES Parents (and students),

    **During our time out of the building, while we are meeting virtually, my office hours will be, M-F, 10am - 12pm and then again from 5pm-6pm. As always, please email, and regardless of the time, I will email you back or call as soon as I am available or within 24 hours. Thank you for you patience and continued support.**

    I know that you are inundated with so much information, I just want to keep things simple and give you a place to go for resources if you need any!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out in the event that you need something that has not been provided. Also, please continue to check the counselors page for any additional resources as I receive them.

    Please let your children know how much I am missing them during this time, and that I am thinking of them and looking forward to their return!

    Donna Adams

    Hello, my name is Donna Adams, school counselor at Mount Vernon Elementary School.  I am very fortunate to be doing what I love, what I feel is the best job in the world!  I love working with our students and their families, and am 100% committed to student success!

    When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my family and friends.  I am a wife and mother of four kids and a grandmother of two!  I love the beach, love to travel, and love Italy!

    My hours are 8:10 am to 3:40 pm, however am open to appointments at other times.  I teach classroom guidance lessons, and do both individual and small group counseling.
