Guidance 

School counselors at Windham Middle School are here to help you become the best person you can be.  Some of the ways we do this is:

~talking with you about your school work

~listening to you if you have a problem or crisis

~meeting with your teachers

~teaching classes

~helping parents

~leading small groups for students with similar concerns

There are two counselors at Windham Middle School--Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Gilbert.  You have probably already met them or seen them around school (including supervising in the cafeteria at lunch!).You can make an appointment to meet with your school counselor anytime you want.  Just stop by the guidance office and tell the secretary that you need an appointment.  You'll get a pass in homeroom the next day with the time of your appointment.  Ask your teacher to sign it and then come to the guidance office. 

WMS counselors teach classes to you each year. 

These include:

Grade 6:  Who Am I?  Understanding your personality/learning style and Growing Up is Hard to Do

Grade 7:  Where Am I Going?  Exploring career choices for the future

Grade 8:  How Do I Get There?  Transition to the high school
