OUR HOPE is for every Oak Grove child to feel inspired, safe,supported and joyful during their school days. We aim to help our students be their best selves. We work to ensure a school culture of inclusivity and acceptance of all.


As counselors, we try to find whatever is most helpful for every child to be successful.  Kids sometimes just need a quiet place or a chance to talk; sometimes they need to problem solve or learn new skills and strategies.  We visit classrooms, work with students in small groups & meet with kids individually. Some issues we help with include making friends, resolving conflicts, family changes, loss & grief, school stress and managing anxiety. 

Behind each of Oak Grove’s great students are their wonderful families. Traci and Kathryn are available to help families with concerns about school, parenting and local resources. Please stop by anytime.  We can be reached at 802-254-3740.

A child’s health is an important part of who they are at school as well as at home. Good health has a direct effect on a students ability to learn. The health office works towards a safe and healthy environment for students that encourages them to make positive decisions about the care of their bodies and ultimately their health.


We promise to offer your students the quality care they deserve. We look forward to establishing a relationship with you and your child. We are available by phone or you may come into the health office. Please feel free to call anytime at 802.254.3746 or email

School Counselor:
Kathryn Mason

I’ve  been Oak Grove’s School Counselor since 2010 doing work that I love, humbled by the challenges our students face and awed by the compassion they show to others.  


Prior to coming to Oak Grove School, I worked for 25 years as a psychotherapist, specializing in trauma. During that time, I worked in community mental health, schools and private practice. I have a Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from Boston University and Advanced Certification in Clinical Supervision from Smith College.  I’m also a VT Licensed School Counselor.


When not at school, I spend time with my wonderful family and friends. I struggle to learn Spanish and travel when I can. I love being outdoors gardening, hiking or playing with our dog, Cusco. My most favorite thing ever- kayaking with whales.
