The Greene Middle School Counseling Department plays an integral part in meeting our school's mission statement. Through collaboration with teachers and parents, we work to ensure that the personal/social, academic, and career development goals of all students are realized. We work with teachers and parents to develop interventions that may assist children to be successful both within and outside of the classroom. Interventions may include consultation or collaboration with teachers and parents to determine appropriate assistance, long or short term individual or group counseling, or classroom lessons designed to meet the developmental needs of all students. A full list of services and community resources can be found on the Pupil Services web page. If you have any questions about services that may be available to your child, please contact Mrs. Worsnopp for more information.

Greene Middle School Mission Statement

"In an environment that builds respect for self and others through team approach, Greene Middle School, in partnership with the community, will strive to meet unique developmental needs of students in transition, from children to adults and from dependent to independent learners."
Health and Wellness Opportunity

Middle school, and the changes that take place in your child's body as he or she moves into adolescence, can be challenging and difficult.  Maintaining your child's emotional health during this time is just as important as maintaining his or her physical health.  We are happy to offer free and confidential emotional and behavioral health screenings to all students in our district.  Please click here for more information about this opportunity, and click here to download and complete the free and confidential screening.  Screenings are completely confidential and can be returned in a sealed envelope to Lisa Dutcher, MS/HS nurse. If you have any questions, please contact Emily Worsnopp, MS Counselor for more information.
