SMS Counseling Department
August 2, 2021
Welcome Back SMS Students and Families,
Every school year brings the promise of new adventures. As your School Counselors, we look forward to helping you navigate your way through middle school .
Some of you worked with us last year, and others are brand new to Southern Middle School. These two years are filled with rapid growth and change. Our goal is to empower you to make tomorrow better than today by learning from yesterday. We will walk beside you to help you get the most out of each day.
We hope summer has been kind to you, and that you found some quiet moments to relax and regroup from last year. Soon, it is time to get back to school and one of our primary roles is to help make this a smooth transition.
Last school year was “like no other”. Some of you attended school in person, while many worked from home. Whatever your situation and experiences were, our goal is to make this year as much like a “normal” middle school experience as possible.
Schedules will be available in the community portal of Sapphire beginning August 2nd. Please contact your counselor with questions or concerns about your course schedule.
Mr. Katz ([email protected]) works with students with the last names A-K.
