The Williamston Middle School Counseling office includes Mrs. McKinney, school counselor, and Mrs. Michalski, school social worker. Our purpose is to support, enhance, and enrich the process of student learning. We assist students in a variety of ways related to their academic progress, behavioral growth, and social and emotional health. We deliver support through individual counseling, small group counseling, large group guidance, consultation, and coordination.
Mrs. McKinney and Mrs. Michalski are active members of many WMS problem solving teams, including the Behavior Response Team, Student Assistance Team, grade level teams, and Restorative Justice team. Helping students thrive during middle school is our goal.
Students are encouraged to join our WMS Counseling Office Google Classroom. This site provides an abundance of resources for students on topics ranging from anxiety and depression to coping skills, physical health, bullying and many more. These resources can help students navigate through a variety of life experiences in or out of school. Students can email Mrs. Mckinney or Mrs. Michalski to join.
Through our schoolwide be nice. initiative, we provide school lessons to all students on mental health and social-emotional wellbeing throughout the school year. Lessons may include information on anxiety, depression, health living, coping skills, friendship, communication skills, anti-bullying, and perspective taking. See the be nice. link for more information.
