Welcome to the MMS Guidance Office
School counselors are involved with counseling, coordination and consulting among administration, staff, parents, students, and the community. We support students in attaining social, academic and personal goals. We help parents/guardians understand school requirements and act as an advocate for students. At the middle school level, counselors work with students individually and in groups to address topics such as study skills, social skills, and self-concept. Counselors also help coordinate services in conjunction with the school psychologist and Committee on Special Education for students with disabilities. We encourage parent/guardian involvement and work together with parents and students to give every child the best opportunity for success.
There are two attachments below for assistance. The first attachment is a student made power point which introduces the basics of 6th grade at MMS to our incoming 5th graders.
The second attachment is a list of numerous community resources for any family who needs help from an outside agency. Please browse this list for help with emergency financial assistance, mental health issues, domestic abuse assistance, substance abuse help, eating disorders, or referral to an outside therapist. We are very fortunate in Dutchess County to have a variety of agencies to help with our every need.
