    Hello! My name is Kjersten Bartusch and I am the school counselor at Pearl Creek Elementary! The 2020-2021 school year marks my 11th year at Pearl Creek and my 15th year as a school counselor in the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District.

    Currently, there are many uncertainties surrounding what the 2020-2021 school year will be like. However, I can assure you that what we DO know is our Pearl Creek community is still very much in tact! I remain committed to supporting both students and families alike; I am available to meet with students, either in-person or virtually, and can help connect parents and families to resources within our community. If you'd like to reach me, you can email me at the address listed below, or complete the form found here and I will get in touch with you as soon as I can. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of assistance, or with questions and/or concerns. 

    Although this school year may present some challenges, please know that I am here to help make this a positive experience for your family. 

    For additional information on what my role is, click here for a brief video. Students and parents can also access all of my virtual counseling lessons on the "Counseling Lessons" tab on this page. 

    I am looking forward to another inspiring, fun, and productive school year at Pearl Creek!
