Students, Parents, and Staff...

Stay Focused Tigers!!!


Each year seems to fly by faster than the year before. This year was like no other as we were faced with a pandemic and an unexpected snowstorm. However, we persevered and made it to the month May. With one month ahead of us we would like to continue to encourage you to maintain good attendance, continue to complete all assignments, and continue to display a PACESETTER's attitude. Remember you are AMAZING and you are AWESOME!!!

Your counselors love YOU and are here for YOU!!!



In response to the anxiety and confusion you may be feeling amid the COVID-19 the Poe Middle School Counseling Department is committed to helping families find the most up- to- date and relevant resources available in our community. Below you will find helpful links for families needing assistance with food, mental health services, and talking to children about their concerns.
