School Counselor's Role
Middle school is an ideal time for self-development, personal/social growth, and setting academic goals.
School counselors develop comprehensive guidance programs aimed at meeting the academic, personal/social, and career needs of all students. Some common middle school issues include academic support, friendship dilemmas, grief, family concerns, bullying, peer conflicts, divorce, anger management, college-preparation etc.
Typical Counseling Tasks
- Individual sessions
- Parent meetings
- Group sessions
- Parent/Teacher conferences
- Conflict-resolution meetings
- SST (Student Study Team) meetings
- 504 Plans
- Scheduling (master schedule, student schedules)
- Classroom guidance lessons

- Referrals to community agencies
- On-going collaboration with teachers and all staff members
How are Students Referred to the Counselor?
We are available to all students, parents and staff. Referrals are made by teachers, parents and students (self-referrals).
We are aware that students are not sure what the process is to set up a meeting. We have good news! Students have several options:
- Stop in before school, during break, lunch or after-school to see if I am available
- Send me an e-mail
- Leave a note for me in the front office (I have a box on my door)
- Let us know that we need to meet when you see me around campus (I love this!)
- Hand me a note when you see me around campus if you do not want anyone to overhear
- Ask your teacher at an appropriate time if you can come to the office
- Leave me a voicemail
We realize that some students may feel shy or nervous about coming in to the office to meet with a school counselor for the first time. School counselors are trained to listen to others and create a safe environment for students to share thoughts and feelings. Our favorite part of the counseling process is collaborating with students to create a variety of appropriate solutions.

Binder Reminder: ALL students are given a Binder Reminder at the beginning of the year. New students receive one at registration. It is essential and required that students have their Binder Reminders with them every day at all times. Students must never tear out pages, fold pages, deface, or manipulate the Binder Reminder in any way. Keep your Binder Reminder intact and treat it as school property. If the Binder Reminder is lost or missing, notify the office, so that the student may purchase a replacement. The purpose of the Binder Reminder is the following:
Serves as a record of tutorial experiences.
Help students organize time and effort in class and at home by providing a place to write down classwork and notes.
