Meet Me in the Middle

Northwest Middle School Counseling Newsletter Term 1

Northwest Counseling Program

Can you believe we are almost done with Term 1 in the new school year? The NWMS counseling department is looking forward to a year of inspirational, educational, and fun activities to support student mental, emotional, social, academic, and college/career success. Students will have opportunities to participate in a variety of groups and programs, as well as classroom guidance lessons.

What does a school counselor do?

If you are still not completely sure about what a school counselor does, never fear! We went to classroom visits to briefly explain who we are, what we do, and why/how students may request our help. If interested in meeting with a counselor for individual time:
  • Students can request individual counseling by completing this GoogleForm, ask a teacher, or if urgent, come directly to the counseling department.
  • To request counseling for your child, please call or email us to discuss your concerns.
