Hello fabulous Fitzgerald community! My name is Ms. Schlesinger and I’m thrilled to be a counselor at Fitzgerald. Our school counseling program is geared towards the ASCA model and is implemented through whole class lessons, small groups, and individual counseling. 

During the school closure I will do what I can to assist students and families. Useful links will be posted to help navigate through this challenging time. I can be reached via email at schlesa@pwcs.edu. Please see the important message below for any emergencies you or your student may have during this difficult time.


 PWCS cares deeply about students’ emotional well-being during their time away from school. If a student is in need of emotional support during this time, please feel free to send an e-mail to studentsupportservices@pwcs.edu.  A school mental health or health professional will answer and offer virtual support to students to the best of their ability.  This e-mail is not to be used for emergency situations as it will not be monitored 24 hours a day.  If a student is ever in an emergency situation he/she is encouraged to call 911 or utilize one of the resources listed below:
