Counselors Corner!

On Wednesday, Dec 8, 2021, our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students participated in a classroom assembly entitled “Say Something”, an initiative that teaches youth and teens how to recognize signs and signals of potential harm to self or others. The students learned three steps that will help them keep their friends and classmates safe from hurting themselves or others. The three action steps your student learned are as follows:


  1. Recognize warning signs and threats

  2. Act immediately and take it seriously

  3. Say something


This presentation was well received by our BMS community and generated thoughtful and candid conversations. We encourage you to take this opportunity to engage in a conversation with you student about this presentation. As always, if you have any questions or your student needs additional support around this topic, please contact one of our School Adjustment Counselors.
