Counselor Welcome

Counselor's Corner

Hello from your new school counselor!

My name is McKenzie Campana and I am overjoyed to join FUSD and the Niles community for the 2021/2022 school year! Born and raised in Fremont, I feel honored to serve students and families in my hometown. I attended Chadbourne, Hopkins and Mission San Jose before pursuing my B.S. in Business Administration at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and M.A. in Counseling & Guidance (including the PPS School Counseling Credential) at San Jose State University. I have experience working with secondary and post-secondary students, but this will be my first year working with elementary. I would love to get to know you and your student(s) as I settle in at Niles, so please don’t be a stranger!

We have some exciting news to announce...

This is the first year that Niles Elementary will have a full-time school counselor on staff! This means that Niles' students and families will have access to a school counselor (virtually and in-person) five days a week, Monday-Friday. 

Establishing a new normal...

The past two years of this global pandemic have been challenging to say the least. As we head into another period of change (resuming in-person school) please know that I am here to support you and your child the best I can. Collectively, the Niles staff is determined to make it a great school year, full of student learning, growth and, of course, fun!

If your child is struggling with returning to in-person learning this school year, email me to discuss different ways I can support your child socially or emotionally.

National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month

October is a month-long observance to educate and raise awareness about bullying and cyberbullying prevention. Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.  Addressing and preventing bullying is something that everyone can do, every day.

Parents and caregivers can talk with children about their school and digital life, and the many roles children can play in bullying. By asking open-ended questions, they can talk about their children’s experience and communicate expectations about appropriate behavior – in person and in their digital world. Parents are the primary role models for their children, and when they model the behavior they expect from their children, they teach through actions.
