School Counseling


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.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

 November is here! We would like to take the opportunity to take a breath during this world wind of a school year and remember all the wonderful things that we have to be grateful for at FCMS. Your counseling team is wishing you a bountiful Thanksgiving filled will love and plenty. Thank you for the honor of working with your scholars every day! Ms. Werner, Mr. Lauer & Ms. Egas 

During this past month your scholars got to view the documentary film Screenagers. Parents also attended a community event to view the film and hold a discussion about all the challenges that our teens are facing when it comes to the power of social media. Please talk to your scholar’s about screen time and help them make safe decisions around their use of social media. Let’s Get the Conversation Started!

World of Work! The 7th grade students explored the World of Work (W.O.W!) Expo on Thursday, October 25th. Students got the opportunity to explore 10 of the 16 Career Clusters identified by the Virginia Department of Education including: Health Sciences, Finance, Agriculture, Public Service & Information Technology to name a few! Many local businesses sponsored this event so students could see what career opportunities exist right here if the Winchester/Frederick County area. The W.O.W! Expo sparked a ton of curiosity and students loved every minute of the experience. 

 8 th Grade Career Café In eighth grade, scholars have the opportunity to meet with and learn from a variety of professionals and explore possibilities through our Career Cafe program. Our goal is to reach as many scholars as possible, with an attendance goal of 78%. Signing up to attend is easy with sign-up sheets available during lunch periods leading up to Cafe dates. So far this year, scholars have had the opportunity to meet with Kelly Masters (Pharmacist), Colonel Doug Hall (United States Air Force, Director, Congressional & Interagency Affairs, United States Transportation) and Sarah Kite (Industrial and Systems Engineer). We have two more Career Cafe opportunities coming up in November (Heather Enloe, Attorney) and December (Virginia Delegate Chris Collins). If you have questions or are interested in volunteering your time to share with our scholars please contact Mr. Luke Lauer via email or via phone at (540)888-4296.
