Counseling Department Update

Nov. 16 - Dec. 21

Pep Fest Dec. 2017

This Month...

  • November 17th was the pick-up date for the annual Eagle County Law Enforcement Stock the Pantry food drive. Our students collected nearly 600 pounds of canned goods and money.
  • In the last weeks of the school semester, the counseling department continued to host their small groups with each grade level on topics such as leadership and self-esteem.
  • Tuesday, December 12th we held our School Counseling Advisory Council Meeting in the iQuad. We had tremendous support from our students and a few parents and community members. Thank you for your support!
  • This year, the entire school participated in the Adopt-a-Family program through the Salvation Army. The amount of gifts we were able to give to each family was an outstanding show of support from our GCMS Wolves.

During the 2017-18 school year, the counseling team will be working towards developing a school counseling program that meets the standards of the ASCA (American School Counseling Association) National Model. It is an ambitious plan to implement a comprehensive program in one year, but the support from all stakeholders makes this possible. By implementing a comprehensive program, we hope to meet the requirements that will get us RAMP (Recognized ASCA Model Program) Certified.
