WMS Counselor Newsletter
Quarter 2 - October/November 2020
Greeting From The WMS Counselors
It has been a great start to the school year and we are happy to provide individual counseling support for our students both face to face and virtually. We will send out quarterly newsletters to keep you informed about the activities of the Counseling Program this school year and encourage students to get involved and get connected with their Counselor. We are looking forward to a fantastic school year!
A comprehensive school counseling program is an integral component of our mission. Comprehensive school counseling programs are driven by student data and based on the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Program guidelines.
Guidance - Counselors visit classrooms 4 times per year to deliver lessons based on the Great 8 skills
Responsive Services - Individual and small group counseling support
Individual Planning - 504, course selection process, behavior plans, goal setting, etc...
System Support - Support to staff and Parents: newsletters, website information, College Corner, Trainings for Staff, Mentoring Program for Students, Open House, Community Outreach, School Counseling Advisory Council, and much MORE!
Please know that we are always here to assist you. Seeing one another face to face is ideal, and working with students directly is the best part of our job! That said, we are prepared to start seeing students in-person who are in need of emotional and social support. All students are welcomed to come in to visit with a counselor throughout the school day.
