Bethel and Penn-Bernville Elementary Counseling Department

  • Hello Tulpehocken Families,

    During this time of unknowing, the counseling departments wants our students and families to know we are still here for them! The school counselors will be posting activities and helpful tips, once a week, on the districts online learning site. Office hours will also be posted on the district website.
