Guidance Department

Welcome to the P.S. 135 Guidance Department page! My name is Alison Arduini and I have joined the 135 staff this year as the school’s new Guidance Counselor.  While I am new to P.S. 135 and District 29, I am actually entering my 18th year as a New York City Department of Education employee, having been a classroom teacher for my first 6 years before switching to the role of the school counselor in 2007.  I look forward to collaborating with teachers, paraprofessionals, service providers, administrators and parents to support the academic, social and emotional development of the students here at The Bellaire School, P.S. 135, Q.


Supporting Our Community!

Holding Hands

Dear P.S. 135 Families,

In these trying times, some of us are also experiencing loss within our families, communities, and organizations we are a part of.  With the current health crisis, unfortunately, we cannot grieve as we typically would which can add even more sadness and anxiety to an already difficult situation and may create more confusion for our little ones.  In an effort to support any family dealing with the loss of life, I would like to share some resources that may help you with the grieving process. Please feel free to reach out to me at if you have any questions or concerns.

With warm regards,

Alison Arduini
School Counselor
