Hello Parents and Students!

My name is Amanda Ori and I am so excited to be working with you at Castle Heights Elementary as your school counselor! My role here at the school consists of many things, including: individual counseling, small group sessions, and teaching whole classroom lessons with the Second Step Program. The Second Step program consists of Social-Emotional Learning and Bully Prevention. If you want more information you can go to the website:

This year we will be implementing the "Mighty Knights" Award for students who demonstrate the following characteristics: Kindness, Neighborly (shows Respect), Integrity, Growth Mindset, Honesty, Thoughtfulness, and Shows Responsibility. Each class will nominate a student each month and that student will be presented with a certificate, reward and will have their picture taken.

I'm excited for the school year, whatever obstacles we may have!

If you would like to contact me, you can reach me at the school. My office hours at 7:45 am to 3:15 pm, Monday- Friday.
