Asher Holmes Elementary School Home of the Colts!

Please Create A Marquee


Hello Parents and Guardians,
Since each student in the district has been placed on Home Instruction due to COVID-19, I will be posting counseling activities to review through my google classroom for my lunch bunch students and sharing links for you to refer to on this webpage. I will also be available online by email from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday through Friday to answer questions/concerns you may have.
We will all be here to assist you and support your children as we navigate through our remote learning.
Mrs. Colao
Hello. I am Mrs. Colao, the school counselor at Asher Holmes. I graduated with a BA in education and dance from Rowan University. Soon after graduating from Rowan, I continued my education and became certified in special education. Education was always valued in my family, so it was no surprise to anyone when I completed my graduate work at Georgian Court College. At GCU, I earned my master's degree in education with a concentration in student personnel.

I am happy to note I have been with the Marlboro Township School District for twenty-one years! Prior to being Asher's school counselor, I was a teacher here for 6 years. It is wonderful to be working with families whom I can now serve in this rewarding position.

I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please note that if you would like to contact me for assistance on any matter, do not hesitate to call at (732) 972-2080 ext. 6160 or by email at

Best wishes on a great "academic" year!
