Read School

Hello Parents and Students of Read School!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! In my role as School Counselor, I will be working with students on developing healthy habits, making positive decisions, and building academic skills.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at, or call at (203) 275-4721. I look forward to working with you and other Read faculty to promote student success.

Thank you,

Emily Johnson
