School Counseling Services

Counselors are essential educators and mental health professionals in the school system. We are growing graduates by teaching educational, career, personal, and social development at all ages!

Personalized Counseling continues for students! Remember, this year I'm meeting with each student through individual meetings. This is a special time for students to tell me about themselves, their strengths, and their goals for the future.

No Place for Hate

This quarter .....Field of Respect

We believe that each person can be KIND to someone (hold the door for them, ask someone if they need help...), but not show that person RESPECT... What is respect? What does it look like? What is kindness? What does it look like? How are they the same? How are they different?

Our students will fill our Field of Respect with flowers explaining how they can commit to showing RESPECT to one another at MBE?

NO PLACE FOR HATE

Last quarter...

Our students participated in The Great Kindness Challenge during Be the Change Week. The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive, proactive, kindness initiative, reaching millions of students and families every year. It provides an opportunity for students to unite and demonstrate that KINDNESS MATTERS. During this week, students were challenged to complete as many acts of kindness as possible, along with participating in kindness activities that encourage a school climate that is respectful, inclusive, compassionate, accepting, and kind.
