Dear Parents and Guardians

School counselors focus on building capacity to positively impact students in each domain of the American School Counselor Association framework: academic achievement, social, emotional development, and postsecondary planning.  We are here to help students view behavioral incidents as an opportunity for personal growth by facilitating social/emotional learning opportunities and providing behavioral interventions.  

BGMS students and families can rely on us to provide academic, social, and emotional support when necessary. 

Best wishes for a wonderful new school year!
