Hello parents!




My name is Shauna Moran and I am the middle school counselor here at Saint Leo the Great School. I have been tasked with the ever important job of overseeing the school’s character education plan and working with the school community to develop new and fun ways to foster the development of our core values into our students. I am also available to meet individually with students and in groups to meet their mental wellness needs as it relates to their education. 


This year, we are incorporating a new character education and social emotional earning program at our school entitled, Character Strong. In a few days, you will receive a letter with more information on this program and will be receiving monthly newsletters from our office with ways to continue the learning at home.



I wanted to be sure that you all had the information necessary to reach me should your child need additional support or resources during what seems to be another unprecedented school year.  If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact me at the email address below or you can reach me at my extension at 203. You can also reach me by directly chatting with me on Microsoft Teams.


 Weekly, Ms. Verbos or Ms. Scourtsis will visit classes and coordinate lessons with Character Strong's trait of the month. Throughout the year, we will showcase some of the incredible character work that your children are doing through service learning in their classrooms. I look forward to once again to coordinating the various character development programming, groups, and electives available through our guidance department to our middle school students.


Lastly, this page will be updated with various resources that can help you with some of the tougher conversations as your child continues to grow and learn.


If for any reason you’d like to contact me with regards to a concern, question, or suggestions related to our character education programming, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].


Thank you!



Shauna Moran, LSW
