Classroom Guidance Activities
- Bully Prevention
Project Alert is a middle school drug and alcohol prevention program. Social workers and school counselors met with all students in grades 7 and 8 during three classes to implement the program this year. Topics covered include tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, inhalants and pain killers.Using the S.O.S. model, the social workers facilitate groups to assist students in advancing personally, socially, and academically. The model promotes a positive, strength-based approach to students’ needs. This group model is specifically aimed at something we believe all students need to succeed: a strengthened sense of self. The goal is for students to help themselves and each other to become increasingly competent in handling the challenges that come their way.

Future Opportunities FairOn January 13 this year, students and parents are invited to learn about the many opportunities our students have in high school and beyond. Students will learn about the academy programs at the high school. High school teachers from the various departments, local colleges, military, and community service agencies will be present.
Helping HandsHigh School PlanningEighth grade students begin the high school course selection process in January. Each student will make initial course requests by the end of January. Throughout the winter, school counselors will meet with individual students (and parents are encouraged to participate in this process) to refine course selections and create a four year high school plan.“The links on this Web site are provided for your information and convenience.
