Welcome to our Counseling Department
The Sutton Middle School Guidance Department plays a vital role in the development of the middle school student. The guidance and responsive services listed below are the services provided to our students:
CRISIS INTERVENTION The counseling staff is ready to implement the crisis intervention plan when needed. Services include counseling, media communications and outside referrals.
GROUP COUNSELING Small group counseling sessions are provided according to need. Some topics can include anger management, friendship groups, healthy behaviors, etc.
INDIVIDUAL CONFERENCES Counselors conference with individual students when referred by teachers, administrators, parents or self-referral.
PARENT CONFERENCES The counselors are available, by appointment, to conference with parents concerning their student. The conference may be individual, include the student, or involve the teachers.
SCHOOL TRANSITION Elementary to middle school and middle to high school transition activities give parents and students the opportunity to become acquainted with the new school environments. Students gain knowledge through school visitations and presentations. From welcoming rising 6th grade students to saying "good-bye" to the 8th grade students as they move to high school, these activities help promote success at the next level.
STANDARDIZED TESTING Counselors assist in coordinating the standardized testing program and interpretation of the results. The statewide testing program includes the Eighth Grade Writing Assessment for 8th grade and the Criterion Referenced Competency Test for grades 6, 7 and 8.
