What kinds of things do counselors do?
Adolescence is a time of rapid growth and change and, often times, the “drama” of being an adolescent can have an impact on academic achievement. School Counselors are available as advocates, leaders, collaborators, and consultants. This means that if you, or your student, are concerned with academics, personal/social development, or future planning – North Lake Middle School Counselors are committed to helping with whatever you need.


How can I help my child make the transition from elementary to middle school?
The first few weeks of school are referred to as the “honeymoon period”. Good intentions, motivation to make it a “good year”, and good behavior mark this period. This is the time to talk honestly with your student about what worked last year, and offer suggestions about changes that may need to be made. Some suggestions include: studying after school vs later in the evening; eating breakfast; keeping an assignment notebook. Talk about what did not work: staying up too late on school nights; procrastinating on long-term projects; giving too much time to one’s social life – and not enough time to school work.
