Counseling and Parent Liaison

COUNSELING & PARENT LIASION SERVICES

Main Street Middle School counselors and parent liaison provide services in educational counseling, career counseling, services for students and families, and opportunities for student scholarships. Parents are encouraged to make appointments by contacting the Main Office for any concerns or questions they may have about their son's/daughter's progress in school.

In order for our students to have the best education possible, parents and the school need to work together.  The counselors and parent liaison also assist in providing outside community service referrals, arrange home visitation, facilitating Student Attendance Review Teams, and Student Success Teams (SST). If a parent wishes to speak with one of their student’s teachers, please leave a message with the main office or send an email to your student’s teacher or counselor.

Counselors will meet with students to develop Six-Year Transition Plans.  The purpose of the Transition Plan is to learn about the student’s interest and to meet with the student and his/her parent to listen, to record, and to inform both students and parents’ the importance of planning and preparation over the middle and high school years for college and career awareness.   Among the many outcomes, but not limited to, students will gain a broader understanding of the class registration process; how to read transcripts; understand the importance of grade point average (G.P.A) and citizenship grades; 8th Grade Promotion criteria;  High School Graduation Requirements; steps to earn the California Seal of Bi-Literacy;  community college entrance requirements; University of California and California State universities entrance requirements; and the value of extra-curricular and co-curricular involvement for the student’s resume.

For further support on to advance your child’s learning goals please contact

Elena Moreno, Grade 8 Counselor, and Danelle Mercer, Grade 7 Counselor.
