WHAT DO SCHOOL COUNSELORS DO?
WHY MIDDLE SCHOOL COUNSELORS?
MMS SCHOOL COUNSELING PROGRAM PHILOSOPHY
“Encouraging the Development of the Whole Student”
| OUR GOAL
As students progress
from one grade to the next, as school counselors we move with them, providing the continuity
necessary to learn about the students and their parents during the four years spent at MMS.
Our goal is to
help all students use their middle school years as a significant
personal learning time. We enjoy working with students, parents, and
teachers and utilizing our community resources in order to accomplish
our ultimate goal of having students experience success.
College and Career Readiness Day

needing extra help are recommended by teachers to participate in our mentoring/tutoring program.
Students from the University of CT visit the school during X-block to
work with our students. This is a semester program, offered both Fall and Spring, with the students
meeting once a week. Pictured below are UCONN Mentors in Mrs. Dickinson's 5th grade with a THANK YOU cake created by Mrs. Dickinson herself.
Youth Employment Program - click here for more information
The Youth Employment Program is a year-long program which promotes student responsibility and accountability through employment during X Block. Because academic success is priority, students may work for ONLY one X Block per week, 50 minutes, earning $2.00 per week.
Students who need to complete their schoolwork will be required to do so before fulfilling their weekly youth employment commitment.
Students complete an application/contract (click here for application) which they pick up at the School Counselors' Offices, Rooms 109/110. Students find teachers who are willing to be their employers. Students are responsible to report to their employers on time, to perform their duties in a thorough and careful way, and to submit a time card to the school counseling offices by the end of X block on Monday.
Payday is Thursday!
