Dear Parents of AMS Tigers,
We have had a great start to the 21-22 school year. The counseling team is excited to share the Atascocita Middle School Personalized Counseling Plan with our Tiger families. Humble ISD has created this informative video to help parents and students understand the direction our counseling program is moving.
Our counselors will be providing each student with two personalized meetings this school year to ensure all students are able to connect with their counselor. These meetings will include opportunities for the student to set goals, discuss academic progress, and discover their personal college and career readiness. The student will be tracking these individual counseling meetings in Naviance, our high school and post-secondary planning tool.
We look forward to working with each student this year to better serve our community for stronger mental health and social emotional education for all. We have one of a kind students who deserve one of a kind counseling.
Thank you from The Counseling Team,
Julie Goodman, 6th Grade
Crystal Nichols, 7th Grade
Shabana Guel, 8th Grade
