Mission Of The Department: The Vernon Center Middle School Counseling Department strives to accomplish the Vernon Center Middle School Mission Statement. The ideals embodied in the school's mission statement are shared by the counseling department and therefore serves as the mission for the counseling department. Noting this, the VCMS Counseling Department is "committed to provide an atmosphere and program that offer students sound academic, social, artistic, and emotional growth and transition from elementary school to high school. We are devoted to helping every student achieve his/her maximum individual potential recognizing that this goal requires the collective best efforts of the staff, the student, the parent, and the community at large. We encourage students to cultivate a respect for themselves and others and to make positive personal choices and decisions."
In addition to the school counseling department, we have two full-time School Social Workers and one full-time School Psychologist at the middle school to assist students in need. School Social Workers and the School Psychologist meet with students individually, offer a variety of counseling and social skills groups, as well as conduct Functional Behavior Assessments and special education evaluations. They are also available to speak with families about community resources and offer support regarding temporary or long-term stressors families may be experiencing.
