My name is Jenny Orefice and I am the School Counselor at Brunson. I am very excited to be here and to get to know all of you!  As a counselor, I view students developmentally and holistically, and work to foster students' growth academically, personally/socially, and to broaden their career knowledge.  Throughout the year I will be working with students and parents in a number of ways, such as:   
    • Classroom Guidance:  I visit all classrooms to teach lessons that help students learn more about themselves and others. 
    • Kindness and Compassion Club: I am the supervisor for Brunson's Kindness and Compassion (KC) Club, a group of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who work together to spread compassion through kind acts in our school and community. 
    • Small Groups and Lunch Bunches: I facilitate small groups that focus on issues students may face throughout the year, such as social skills, conflict mediation, and transitions.  
    • Individual Support and Counseling:  I work with students individually to support them throughout their time at Brunson. 
    • IST Chair:  I am the chair for Brunson's Intervention Support Team (IST) which supports teachers in creating targeted interventions for students to reach their potential for success at school.     
    Please feel free to call or email me with questions, thoughts, or concerns! I am in room 21A on the second floor, and my email is jknilesorefice@wsfcs.k12.nc.us. I am happy to help in any way that I can and am looking forward to working with you this school year!
