A School Counselor is a professional member of the school staff who has been trained to address the personal, academic, and career concerns of students. School Counselors are certified educators who assist students, parents, teachers, and administrators. The primary role of the School Counselor is to help students as they seek to identify and achieve personal goals, as well as academic goals. The mission of the FMS Counseling Department is to help support students to become healthy, motivated individuals who are capable of reaching their full potential. We encourage students to find balance in their lives and we encourage them to celebrate and value their unique strengths and talents. Our hope is that all of our students will be resilient, capable, and meaningful contributors to our community. We are here to guide, comfort, support, and encourage students in their academic and personal needs.
In seventh and eighth grade, students are assigned to one School Counselor based on teams (see listing) that will help each student find success in school. Unfortunately, there is no magic solution. Success in school requires hard work. Please take the time to review some suggestions compiled by our School Counselors to help students find success. A link to
"Steps Toward a Successful School Year" is listed under the Resources. We look forward to working with you this school year!
"If you want something very badly, you can achieve it. It may take patience, very hard work, a real struggle, and a long time; but it can be done. That much faith is a prerequisite of any undertaking, artistic or otherwise." ~ Margo Jones
