District Mourns Passing of Former School Counselor

In Memoriam: Pauline Kolodzey


It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share news of the untimely passing of school counselor Pauline Kolodzey following a courageous battle with cancer.  Pauline joined the District on September 1, 2013, and spent one year at Wedgwood Elementary.  She returned to the District in January of 2015, assuming the same role at Orchard Valley Middle School.  She was named County School Counselor of the Year in 2020, following a vote by her middle school colleagues from across Gloucester County. Pauline will be remembered as a caring leader and role model who led with kindness and compassion. She truly enjoyed working with her students in creative ways and was a cherished and respected member of our school community.  She is survived by her husband, Christopher, and their son, Nicholas.  Please join us in remembering Pauline with fondness and in keeping her family, friends, students and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
