CWMS School Counselors


The Signs of Suicide (SOS) curriculum was delivered to all 6th grade students on October 1-3 at Canal Winchester Middle School. The SOS Program is a school-based suicide prevention program. The overall goal of SOS is to prevent and reduce suicidal behavior by expanding the safety net for students experiencing mental and emotional distress.


The middle school counselors introduced themselves and their services during 6, 7, and 8th grade classroom presentations in September.

In November, Similar But Different, our student leadership organization, facilitated “Because I Said I Would" lessons to 6th and 7th grade students during connections. The lessons centered around the importance of making and keeping promises and personal integrity. To find out more information about the organization, please visit their website at

In order to support the American Heart Association, the middle school will again be hosting the annual staff versus student dodgeball game on Friday, December 20th benefiting the American Heart Association. Students need to raise $20.00 in order to participate and earn an American Heart Association shirt. This CWMS fundraiser raises an average of $1,200 each year for the American Heart Association to support research on cardiovascular disease and prevention.

Second Step (SEL) Program

CHECK OUT PARENTEENCONNECT.ORG, a free website for parents and their teens created by the makers of the Second Step Program, is a great resource for middle school families. It provides expert advice and practical tools for dealing with real parent-teen issues.

At, you can hear from real parents and teens about the issues that cause conflict in their lives—including screen time, independence, responsibility, and communication—and get expert advice. Visit at home with your child, select a topic together, and get talking!

Breakouts at CWMS

Students in Ms. Carson’s and Mr. Locker’s classes recently participated in classroom breakouts. A ‘breakout” is similar to an escape room. Students are given a box with a variety of locks as well as clues to solve the lock combinations. As a team, students use communication, collaboration, creativity and their critical thinking skills to solve the combinations for 3-digit, 4-digit, word and directional locks within a time limit. Ms. Carson’s sixth grade students used their knowledge of growth mindset to successfully breakout while Mr. Locker’s seventh grade students used their math skills to solve an October-themed team-building breakout. In addition to these breakouts, eighth grade students have also participated in an Edgar Allen Poe-themed activity during their ELA classes.
