Meet the New School Counselor 

Hello! My name is Ellen Belarmino and I am the new school counselor at EastlakeElementary School. Before this, I was a school counselor at Parsippany Highs School for 19 years. I’m excited to become part of the Eastlake family and get to work with such amazing students, families, and staff each day! I am a proud mom of two college-age kids (Kelly & Radon) and in my free time, I love spending time with my family and friends, and my two cats, Pudge and Lola. I also enjoy reading novels, listening to music, going to Broadway shows, and spending time at the beach.
