Our Counseling Department here at
North Jefferson Middle School strives to help students succeed
academically, emotionally, and socially. We assist students in large
classroom counseling settings, small groups, and individually. We
believe that one of the keys to a student's success is determined by his
or her actions, choices, and sense of responsibility. We begin every
morning with a "Call to Excellence", which shows students how important
they are in controlling their own destiny and reminds them about how
crucial the choices are that they make today:
"I am an important part of the success of North Jefferson Middle School.
Today, I get to choose to learn what I want to learn.
I get to choose to act how I want to act. I get to choose to be who I want to be.
It's a Great Day to be a Blue Devil and today, I choose to be excellent!"
We assist students in many different areas including:
- Time Management/Organization
- Peer Pressure
- Dealing with Anger
- Problem Solving/Coping Skills
- Study Skills
- Classroom Behavior
- Decision Making

- Career Planning
