WELCOME TO OUR

COUNSELORS' CORNER

   
 

With spring fast approaching, it signifies the time of year when many choices are to be made by our students as they prepare for their next chapter in their education. Our Course Selection Process has begun which involves many steps, especially for our current 8th grade students moving on to MHS. This page is full of valuable information that will help you and, more importantly, your student in selecting the courses he or she should take in order to reach their postsecondary goals.

Please look over the calendar of important dates provided below for students, parents, and guardians to help all prepare for this selection process and add the dates to your calendars.    

As you look through our website you will see that we have created a tab for each grade level. These pages will provide you with valuable insight into our Course Selection Process. It is our hope that our MJH families will better understand the this process much more clearly than in the past and be better able to help direct their student to the right path in high school. Please contact your counselor if you have any questions or concerns!

Recover Your Life for Self Harmers:
Known for helping people suffering with Self Harm, we also welcome and support people with other issues such as Eating Disorders, Mental Health problems, those dealing with Abuse, and many more!

Teen Health:
Making a change
 
Stop Bullying:
Bullying stops us from being who we want to be, and prevents us from expressing ourselves freely, and might even make us feel unsafe. If you are bullied, say something! If you are bullying, it’s not cool!
 
Teens Against Bullying:
Created by and for teens, this website is a place for middle and high school students to find ways to address bullying, to take action, to be heard, and to own an important social cause
 
Your Life, Your Voice
If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or you are being abused, please call us. These are serious issues that are best handled in one-on-one conversations with counselors.
