School Counseling

Mission

The data-driven comprehensive school counseling program at Frederick County Middle School will facilitate students' success in the three domains of academic, personal/social and career development. The counselor's role will be to facilitate a collaborative effort between home, school and community. The counseling program will be developmental in nature, while encompassing individual differences and abilities, with an ultimate goal of fostering responsible and productive citizens.

November Counselor's Corner

Wow, we are through the 1st quarter already!  It has been a whirlwind of excitement, sports, school wide events, fun and learning.  As we reflect on the 1st report card I have a few things to share.  Some of you may be happy and some may be not so happy with the grades that appeared on your report cards. 

Keep in mind that the purpose of any grade is to pick a moment in time and place a marker there.  Regardless of what the grade is, it is not a description of YOU!  A grade should be used simply as information.  Do the grades help you see where your strengths and weakness lie?  Is there information available to help you set goals and make a plan for improvement?  If you have perfect grades, how can you stretch yourself, maybe you have a physical goal or a way that you can help others? 

I would like to encourage both parents and scholars to use the wonderful technology available to you with the Tyler System.  You can see assignments, whether they have been turned in or not, and grades almost live and in real time. Google Classroom is another valuable resource.  Most teachers have assignments, due dates, practice sheets, and links to helpful web sites on their classrooms.

Lastly, stay in touch with me and/or your scholar’s teachers. We are all here to help your children have a successful social and academic year. Please do not hesitate to call me anytime.  6th grade counselor contact –Ms. Egas & 7th grade counselor contact - Mr. Lauer.  On to the 2nd quarter!

8th Grade Field Trip
All 8th Grade Students will enjoy a field trip to Lord Fairfax Community College on November 1, 2017.

Kindness Rocks
A nationwide trend has hit the Frederick County & Winchester area, and it's spreading kindness throughout the community with painted rocks. FCMS is joining the trend! The idea is to paint rocks with positive messages and images on them, hide them throughout the Frederick County & Winchester communities and whoever finds them can either keep the rock or hide it again, so the process can be repeated. 

The FCMS Kindness Rocks Club will meet every other Thursday (starting November 2) from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. in the Earth Level House A Commons. Come spread kindness in your Community and Paint some ROCKS!


Please return the form below (before Nov. 2) to your School Counselor
