Counselor's Corner

 Hello Bishop Bears!  

I am so happy that each and every one of you has chosen to return with us to in-person learning.  Seeing members of our Bishop community in person again has completely filled my bucket!

We knew we would have to roll remote and that this year would require a lot of flexibility and resilience!  Of course, I am sorry that we had to roll remote so soon, but I know that as Bears we will pull together and keep on learning and growing!!

In addition, I am so excited that we now have a school social worker at Bishop, Madison Peppa!  She is an amazing addition to our team!!  In the interests of cohorting, I am primarily working with the K-2 cohort and Madison is primarily working with the 3-6 cohort. You can find out more about Ms. Peppa below! 

As always, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or resource needs.  My remote phone number is 720-680-3395.  My desk phone is 303-806-2406, and my email address is  My office hours during remote learning are from 2:45-3:15 at:  Meeting ID: 550 366 197          Passcode: 025093     Students and / or  parents are welcome to come to office hours for any reason!  I would love to see you!

Take care,

Kim Fickas, Counselor & School Psychologist


Hello Bishop Community! 

I am so thankful to be a part of the Bishop Bears family! I just moved to Colorado this summer from Chicago, Illinois and have received the warmest welcome from everyone at Bishop! Colorado is a lot different from the big city of Chicago, but wow, is it amazing! I have so enjoyed going on hikes, camping, and riding my bike, and am looking forward to the ski season this year. I have a dog and a cat at home that I enjoy spending time with when I’m not out exploring the mountains!  

Even though I am primarily working with the 3-6 cohort, I have loved getting to wave hello to some of our younger learners. I know school looks a little different this year than what we’re used to, but I have already seen so many flexible learners just within these few short weeks! Just as Mrs. Fickas said, we will keep growing from this!!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any needs you may have. My remote phone number is 720-680-3434. My Bishop phone number is 303-806-6903. My email address is  I am available for office hours during remote learning from 2:45-3:15 via Zoom: Feel free to stop by, even just to say hi!

All the best, 

Madison Peppa, School Social Worker
