MSS Counseling Department
I would like to acquaint you with the services available through the Counseling Department here at Middle School-South. In addition to individual counseling, classroom guidance/presentations and parent consultation, structured group sessions that deal with specific concerns may be offered depending on the interest of the students. Topics may include getting along with others, building/keeping relationships, decision making, communicating in the family, and handling peer pressure. While not therapy sessions, these educational support groups can be an excellent way for students to learn new skills, develop self-confidence, practice new behaviors, and better understand how to deal with many situations life presents.
The group sessions will meet during the school day and are available to all Middle School-South students. Each group will meet for one hour per week over a five to eight week period, depending on the topic and/or needs of the group. Scheduled session times will be rotated weekly. Students will be responsible for makeup of all assignments while out of the classroom. These educational support groups will be offered throughout the school year. All information shared will be treated confidentially and respectfully.
Information regarding educational support groups being offered will be made available to the students in September through classroom presentations and the announcements. I encourage you to call/e-mail at anytime. I look forward to working with you this school year.
