|WHY SEE YOUR COUNSELOR?
Because of the exciting changes that occur during the middle school years, there are many different reasons you may wish to talk with your school counselor. One reason may be in the area of academics (the classes you are taking). Another subject that we can talk to you about is friendships. Friendships may change in middle school. Sometimes it is very exciting because there are so many new friends to make. Sometimes it is confusing because old friendships change. School counselors are available to discuss emotions (the way you feel inside). Sometimes things happen in your life that you have no control over, such as parents getting a divorce or grandparents dying. When things like this happen, it hurts and you may need to talk to someone about the hurt. The school counselors at Johnston Middle School want to help you work through anything that you may have questions or concerns about, come talk to us, we are here to help you.
