Hello.  I am the School Social Worker at Walden Elementary School.  I wear many hats in an effort to help our students reach their maximum academic potential.  I provide individual and group counseling services (with parental consent) about issues at home or at school that may be effecting a student's academic performance.  I am also the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) coordinator for Walden Elementary School, I coordinate Red Ribbon Week activities during the last week of October, No Name Calling week activities during the third week in January, and I am the co-advisor for the Walden Elementary School Student Government.
    If you or your child would like to speak with me regarding a school or family issue that may be effecting his/her academic performance, please feel free to call or e-mail me.
    My telephone number is 457-2400 ext. 15645.  My e-mail address is diane.cassell-smith@valleycentralschools.org.
